A haunted Tom Riley (Monroe) stars in this bleak feature-length drama based on Adam Creed’s novel Suffer the Children.

DI Will Wagstaffe (Riley), a cop with a traumatic past that’s hinted at in frequent flashbacks, is on leave and about go to Spain when he’s called back to attend a gruesome crime scene.

A man who was suspected of sexually abusing his own daughters, but was released due to lack of evidence, has been found dead in the most grisly of circumstances.

When another victim with a similar history is found, Wagstaffe starts to wonder: is a vigilante on the loose?

A compelling mystery, but it’s all so dark and grim that it would probably have been a bit easier to take as a mini-series.
