ABOUT THE SHOW
Bafta-winning writer Jack Thorne's compelling eight-part drama series about murder and secrets set in the English countryside.
ABOUT THE CHARACTERS
Annie is someone who no-one quite notices. She's always there, always fun, always part of the action, but she's not someone who pushes herself forward. Annie is fair to her core. She's a friend to those who think they have no-one.
Cal is an enigmatic presence. Raised by whoever was around, he went through the care system and the experience changed him fundamentally. By the time he re-emerged, he was a different boy.
Janine loves animals and is an extraordinarily good vet. She sees herself as self-sufficient and is fiercely independent.
Eli is a young man on his own. With his dad in jail and his mother dead, Eli cared for Cal until his brother was carted off to care - and came home a very different boy. Their relationship's always been scrappy - they’re brothers after all - but Eli loves Caleb very much. And blood always comes first.
James works on the family farm run by his mother. He is expected to take over one day, but James finds complication in the smallest things, things his best friend Rob, can't understand at all.
Rob is better looking than most, more socially at ease than most, though frequently gets entangled in situations he doesn't quite understand. But that's okay because life's a laugh. Rob is dating Tina, is a good friend to James and knows how to throw a good party.
Ruth is a mixed-race provisional Police Constable. She and her Romany mum are estranged from the traveler world, but that doesn’t stop Ruth. Not much does. Not being a young single mum, or the fact that she lives in the same village as a group of friends who no longer talk to her. She's made of stronger stuff, or at least she thinks she is.
Dom is the Assistant Trainer at the stables. He's attractive and cocky but vulnerable. A seductive combination.
Tina loves horses and wants to be the first female jockey to win the Derby. A local girl, she's been in trouble with the law before. And she'll get in trouble with the law again. Tina is unconventional, dangerous and dating Rob.
