The story charts a student who seeks out his former tutor, a writer/professor, to help with his writer's block. Following the discovery of an old grave in the professor's garden, he is arrested on suspicion of murdering a young girl who disappeared in the area decades earlier. The former student sets out to help his mentor and try and prove his innocence. A tough ask considering the girl was buried on his land and he was having, if not an affair, then an infatuation with her.Written by

I never give a ten rating
I came into this series with quite low expectations, after reading some early reviews, it was the fact that Ben Schnetzer was in it that drew me in.
I never give a ten rating usually, but I can't find anything I don't like about this programme.
The acting is great, even the minor characters are well cast. I haven't read the book it's based on, so I can't comment on how it translates. However in my opinion, the story is completely absorbing and well written.
Special mention for the cinematography, beautiful and so many subtle touches that add to how the ongoing story unfolds.
I have recommended this series to all my friends and they have not been disappointed. I can't remember when I have enjoyed a programme as much as this one. PS Ben Schnetzer is brilliant of course and I am not his mother btw!
