Upcoming BBC One thriller series Wolf has just released its first trailer – giving viewers a first glimpse of Doctor Who's Sacha Dhawan and Game Of Thrones star Iwan Rheon in the new show.


The cast for the six-part crime drama is led by Ukweli Roach (The Midwich Cuckoos), who plays young detective DI Jack Caffery, while Sian Reese-Williams (Hidden) Juliet Stevenson (Out Of Her Mind), Owen Teale (Line Of Duty) and Annes Elwy (The Light In The Hall) also have key roles.

The chilling 90-second trailer opens with Caffery declaring: "Your theory on those murders, it's full of holes" and goes on to show Dhawan and Rheon's characters play some deeply sadistic games with the inhabitants of a country house – before the two narratives appear to come together.

You can watch it in full below:

The official BBC synopsis for the series reads: "DI Jack Caffery is a young detective beset by nightmares. Obsessed with the neighbour he believes murdered his 10 year-old brother in the 90s, Jack finds himself trying to right the wrongs of others - but at what cost?"

The synopsis continues: "In an isolated house in Monmouthshire, the wealthy Anchor-Ferrers family find themselves the victims of a psychopath’s cruel games, trapped and terrorised. When the two narratives collide, it’s a thrilling, nail-biting, and deeply disturbing race against time."

Speaking about his leading role earlier in the year, Ukweli Roach said: “I’m honoured to be taking on the role of Jack Caffery in Wolf. Megan Gallagher has brought Mo Hayder’s dark storylines into focus in a way that will be challenging, but also every actor’s dream. I can’t wait to bring Jack to life.”
