Watch the Season 2 trailer…
Philip Glenister takes the role of Prison Officer David Murdoch whose life becomes complicated when on a routine visit to a Manchester hospital with female prisoner Jules Hope (MyAnna Buring) events spiral out of control. David takes a phone call that will change his life forever.
With the life of his heavily pregnant daughter, Lucy (Sammy Winward), threatened, David has no alternative but to go on the run and inadvertently becomes the prey.
Unaware of the danger to Lucy, DS Susan Reinhardt, whose personal happiness seems forever blighted, tries to unravel why David is suddenly behaving totally out of character. With his reputation as a prison officer intact, Reinhardt tries to understand why he is now making every effort to dodge the police.
Reinhardt and her new colleague, DC Richard Iddon (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), set off on a thrilling pursuit as a desperate David handcuffs himself to Jules. She is his only bargaining tool as he sets out to move ‘heaven and earth’ to find his beloved daughter.
