As a prison riot erupts into violence, Red comes face to face with the ring leader: the man who once held him hostage and nearly drove him mad. But what they don't know is a killer's amongst them, preying on their weaknesses.
Fitz returns to Manchester after living 10 years in Australia with his wife and youngest son. He is soon drawn into the investigation of a British soldier who may have been traumatized by his years serving in Northern Ireland.
This is the best drama I've seen in a very long time, if not ever. Firstly, Ken Stott is an absolutely fantastic actor, he perfected the part so you really believed he was DCI Red Metcalfe, struggling with all his secrets and dark past. In fact all the actors were excellent in their roles, particularly Neil Dudgeon, Frances Grey and of course, Jamie Draven. The novel in the first place was highly original with an amazingly complex plot, and this was successfully adapted into a high quality, brilliant directed screenplay. To sum up, this was an electrifying piece of ground-breaking drama, every moment communicating mesmerising details about this complex plot and it's highly believable characters. See it if u can, believe me.
