This ‘pre-apocalyptic thriller’ gets off to an explosive start as enigmatic cop Elaine Renko (model and actor Agyness Deyn) is assaulted and left for dead.

Written by Luther creator Neil Cross, the London-set thriller follows the uneasy relationship between Renko and new partner Hicks (Jim Sturgess) as they stumble across news of an extinction-level event that will wipe out life on Earth.

Unfortunately, knowledge of this ‘Hard Sun’ event is a death sentence in itself, and MI5 are soon pursuing the duo in a thrilling chase sequence.

David Bowie’s Five Years – which inspired the tale – plays over the closing credits of a cracking opener to an intriguing series.
