Writer Danny Brocklehurst commented earlier this year: “It’s always great for a writer when you have a superb cast to bring your words to life. I’m thrilled to be working with the super-talented MyAnna Buring, an actress I have admired for many years, and the brilliant Ben Batt. I know that they will inhabit Helen and Paul, and deliver the performances these complex characters deserve.”

The show’s official synopsis reads: “With visceral emotional dilemmas at the centre of the two crime stories, the series is anchored by Helen Weeks and her journey towards motherhood. Can she overcome childhood secrets and unexpected tragedy that befalls her to make the world a better place for her unborn child? Even if you love someone, do you ever really know them completely?”
