See the trailer for ‘Fortitude’ writer’s ITV serial-killer drama ‘The Loch’

Posted Filed under

‘Happy Valley’ and ‘The Missing’ actors will star in ITV’s crime drama that was filmed in Scotland last year. 

A new six-part murder mystery thriller, The Loch (originally commissioned last year under the title Loch Ness), is finally making its way to ITV. Indeed, we now have a trailer.

Based around the iconic Scottish body of water, which will provide the backdrop for the drama, Laura Fraser (The Missing), Siobhan Finneran (Happy Valley) and John Sessions (Florence Foster Jenkins) will take leading roles in the show. Alongside them will be Don Gilet (Holby City), Gray O’Brien (Titanic: Blood and Steel) and William Ash (Death in Paradise). It was written by Stephen Brady (Fortitude, Silent Witness). The show was written by Stephen Brady (Fortitude)

The Loch’s plot will revolve around Annie Redford and her family – husband Alan and their only child Evie – as she becomes embroiled in a murder investigation that “will undermine their stability and create tensions that threaten to disrupt and destroy their lives together”.

“In a community nourished and sustained by myth and bordered by untamed nature, the search for a serial killer becomes a matter of life and death for local detective Annie Redford who is trying to cope with her first murder case. When the body of local man Niall Swift is found at the foot of Carn Mohr Mountain and an isolated human heart on the loch shore, the town’s normality is shattered and the nightmare begins.”

Here’s that trailer, then…

The Loch was filmed in the Highlands of Scotland almost a year ago, under its original title Loch Ness, and will finally reach our screens during June. We’ll have more when we know for sure when exactly.
