Tonight the second episode of Deadwater Fell will air on Channel 4.
Deadwater Fell is a drama inspired by the Netflix true crime documentary called The Staircase.
It revolves around a small community which is rocked by a heinous crime.
In the leading role is David Tennant, who plays Tom – a GP who lives in Scotland with his wife Kate and young children.
The Channel 4 synopsis reads: “Amid the confusion of the house fire, Kate and her three children are found dead, and Tom, who is found alive, is rushed to hospital.
“It soon becomes apparent, however, that Kate and her children weren’t killed in the fire and the village realise that something unspeakable has happened."
Here we take a look at the cast who play in the Channel 4 drama.
