Exploring the emotional fallout of a child's abduction not only on the family but on the wider community, this gripping relationship thriller is told over two time frames and two countries.


It stars James Nesbitt and will be shown on Tuesdays, 9PM.

Could it be the new Broadchurch? Looks excellent anyway and it's the BBC making it so it should be good. They've produced so much good drama lately!

Not bad. The father/son conversation suggested that they've done something to upset someone and he's been taken for revenge.

I enjoyed it, I really don't know how they can stretch this out over the course of 8 episodes and keep it interesting but I guess we'll see.

I finally caught up, best new drama since 'Happy Valley' for me!

The last few moments of episode 3 really, really haunted me and I eventually had to look away. Very impactful.

This is just getting better and better. Loved the twist at the end.. I was thinking 'oh, well showing us both characters eight years on ruins the suspense a bit when we know they're both alive!' and then BAM. Looking back, maybe the whole setting on the boat seemed a bit too perfect to be true definitely caught me out though.

Well, that plot twist was certainly different!

Great 5th episode. It's quite complex but has me intrigued.

Finally up to date on this - I'm really liking it. I think it's as good as Broadchurch but the actual mystery in Broadchurch was much better.

I knew the hotel was connected to the abduction right from the very first episode!

Well, that was one of the most pointless eight weeks of television and an awful ending. So disappointed! sad.gif

The season 2 announcement was apparently a total Broadchurch style announcement rip-off laugh.gif

If they want viewers to watch then they needed to have a definitive ending - see Broadchurch. No way viewing figures will be anything as high.

Really annoyed, the writers trying to be clever, and leaving it up for us to interpret. That's not what I want. I'm still none the wiser as to what happened - he could be dead, or alive.

Oh I really dislike "leave it to the viewers to interpret" endings. sad.gif I really wanted a very conclusive ending, especially after 8 weeks of this. drama.gif Quite disappointing.

FWIW, my interpretation is Olly is dead and the face on the frosted window was drawn by Tony. Presumably he had done the same thing in various other Russian towns and cities.

I don't think there is anything wrong with leaving it open for people to reach a different conclusion.
