ITV confirms transmission date for The Tower

Yes, there’s another new crime drama coming on ITV.

The channel is pumping them out left, right and centre at the moment (probably in order to clear the schedules for I’m A Celebrity), and The Tower is a three-part drama starring Gemma Whelan.

It’s also being stripped across the week.

Homeland screenwriter Patrick Harbinson has adapted Kate London’s first novel for ITV, Post Mortem.

The Tower is the first in Kate London’s Metropolitan series of novels featuring Sergeant Sarah Collins and rookie Lizzie Griffiths.

A veteran beat cop and a teenage girl fall to their deaths from a tower block in south-east London. Left alive on the roof are a five-year-old boy and rookie police officer Lizzie Griffiths. Within hours, Lizzie has disappeared, and Detective Sergeant Sarah Collins is charged with leading the investigation. She not only has to track down Lizzie before she comes to serious harm, but also to uncover the truth behind the grisly deaths. What chain of events took two police officers and two children to the roof of that tower block – why did two of them die? Why did two of them survive?

The antagonistic relationship between the experienced Sergeant Sarah Collins and the novice cop Lizzie Griffiths is at the heart of London’s novels and The Tower.  What happened on the roof of the tower is the mystery that Sarah must uncover. When it’s finally revealed, the truth will cast its shadow over Sarah and Lizzie’s relationship and their lives. 

The Tower: Monday 8th – Wednesday 10th November, 9pm, ITV
