In the second episode of BBC One’s compelling new thriller, Daniel Demoys (Christopher Eccleston) is appointed mayor and begins his quest for redemption. But can he keep his deadly secret from wife Alex (Dervla Kirwan)?
Ruth (Rebecca Callard) starts to piece together the truth about her father’s murder, while Detective Bevan (Andrew Scott) starts to suspect the behaviour of his estranged wife Sylvie (MyAnna Buring) – and both of these separate investigations lead straight to the new mayor.
