Safe House

A new cast and a new case as the gripping crime thriller Safe House returns

Christopher Eccleston is gone and True Blood star Stephen Moyer leads a brand new cast as this tightly-wound, cat-and-mouse thriller returns for a second series.

Stephen plays Tom Brook, a retired detective with a haunted past (is there any other kind?), who finds himself getting involved in an old case after a brutal kidnapping.

Some harrowing opening scenes aside, this week’s first episode builds the tension slowly.

Yet the smouldering plot is sure to catch fire in explosive fashion sooner rather than later, especially with Jason Watkins, Ashley Walters, Zoë Tapper, Sacha Parkinson and Dervla Kirwan among the supporting cast.
