Ever since last year’s acclaimed The Missing, Harry and Jack Williams have been hot property. It was announced a while back that the brothers had penned a new thriller for BBC1, and now it has not only been announced it’ll start filming on Monday (24th August), but the cast has also been revealed. And it’s a pretty good cast.
Set in Edinburgh and the Highlands, it tells the story of two families – the Elliots and Douglases – living side by side in isolated rural Scotland. They know each other inside out but when two of them are horrifically murdered, their lives are shattered and their relationships, both between and within the grieving families, are tested to the limit.
In the search for answers, skeletons are unearthed and old wounds are reopened, as honesty, loyalty and morality is all brought into question. Everyone has secrets, but when the lines between right and wrong, good and bad, true and false, become blurred, what path do you take, and how do you cope with the lasting and deadly consequences?
So here’s the cast:
Georgina Campbell (from Murdered By My Boyfriend)
That’s a pretty good cast anyone’s book, and the set-up is intriguing too. If The Missing is anything to go by One Of Us may feature different timelines and various other narrative devices. I’m looking forward to it.
