Still haunted by the unsolved murder of his parents when he was 16, ‘Staffe’ is about to continue a personal hunt for their killers when he’s called to the scene of a disturbingly brutal murder. When it emerges that this is not the only victim, the pressure is on as Staffe pushes the boundaries in his search for the truth. But what he uncovers is far more shocking than he could have ever imagined…

Thursdays at 8.30pm from November 14 on BBC First.


  1. This looks good. It originally aired in 2016 as a movie pilot and 4 new episodes have been added in 2018, meaning there’s an unexplained 2 year ageing of the cast.
