Anna Friel plays a London police detective in the eight-part crime drama Marcella, coming soon to ITV.
The multi-stranded script is by Hans Rosenfeldt (who also wrote The Bridge), and has been billed as a noir thriller told in a Nordic style.
When Marcella's husband leaves her unexpectedly saying he no longer loves her, she returns to the Met’s Murder Squad.
Ten years ago Marcella gave up her fast-tracked police career to devote her life to her family. Now she throws herself back into a serial killer case she first worked on in 2005.
Has the killer re-appeared or is a copycat murderer responsible for a series of recent deaths? Suspicious of her husband’s motives for leaving, Marcella also finds herself playing detective away from work.Update: the first episode will be broadcast at 9 pm on Monday, 4 April 2016.
