Writer and executive producer Danny Brocklehurst teased earlier this year: “I have loved creating a new web of intrigue, secrecy and mayhem for a range of new characters, which will be brought to life by a truly fantastic and talented cast. The new series promises more humour, heartache and shock revelations as very ordinary people find themselves in the most desperate of situations.”
