    Jake Arnott's second thriller, a dark and disquieting work inspired by true events (most notably, the case of Harry Roberts who murdered three policemen and hid out in Epping Forest for more than three months) was elegantly adapted by screenwriter Ed Whitmore and featured striking performances from Rafe Spall and Kelly Reilly.

    The serial. helmed by award winning director Adrian Shergold, aired to uniformly positive reviews and marked a conscious departure by ITV from its usual, lighter and more feel good drama fare.
