Written by Daragh Carville, The Bay first aired on ITV in 2019. The second season sees D.S. Lisa Armstrong (Morven Christie) of the West Lancashire Police Service who, now that her suspension is over, has been demoted. Now working under D.C Ahmed ‘Med’ Kharim (Taheen Modak), the team are investigating the shooting of a solicitor who is shot on his doorstep. To complicate Lisa’s life further, her ex-husband Andy (Joe Absolom) reappears.
A Confession is a six-part drama on ITV which follows the true story of DS Stephen Fulcher (Martin Freeman) and his hunt for missing 22-year-old Sian O’Callaghan (Florence Howard) which took place in 2011. Fulcher intends on catching the killer even if it costs him his career and reputation. But whilst his actions ultimately lead to the arrest of prolific serial killer Christopher Halliwell (Joe Absolom), much to the relief of two grieving mothers, Elaine Pickford (Siobhan Finneran) and Karen Edwards (Imelda Staunton), a loophole in the system soon sees the subsequent downfall of his career.
