As I mentioned yesterday, things are about to kick off post-Olympics and one of the things that will merit your attention at the end of the month is the four-part BBC1 series, One Of Us. It has a great cast, a great premise and has been concocted by The Missing showrunners Harry and Jack Williams. And now the BBC has confirmed its transmission date.
So here’s a quick recap of what’s what:
Adam Elliot and Grace Douglas are childhood sweethearts, just back from their honeymoon when they are brutally murdered. Their families, neighbours in the remote Scottish Highland village of Braeston, are devastated. But their world is turned upside down when the murderer arrives on their doorstep the night after the killing. A storm has been raging, and his car comes off the road. When the two families find him, badly injured, they are faced with a terrible dilemma…
In the search for answers, skeletons are unearthed and old wounds reopened. Everyone has secrets, but when the lines between right and wrong, good and bad, true and false, become blurred, how do you cope with the lasting and deadly consequences?
How do you cope, indeed? The cast is excellent: Juliet Stevenson, Joanna Vanderham, John Lynch, Adrian Edmondson, Georgina Campbell, Joe Dempsie, Julie Graham, Gary Lewis, Steve Evets and Kate Dickie.
Here’s a trailer:
To say it’s a must-watch is an understatement.
One Of Us: Tuesday 23rd August, 9pm, BBC1
