What is Dark Heart on ITV about?
With his job and relationships on the line, Staffe finds himself haunted by past demons and fighting to solve the series of gruesome murders. It's Staffe’s job to stop the body count from rising. Tom Riley is joined by Charlotte Riley, who also stars in Mike Bartlett's BBC drama Press on BBC One this autumn.
Award-winning writer Chris Lang said: ‘For me he is that most unusual of things, a TV cop whose personal story is as compelling as the cases he investigates.’
Most of the cast are veterans of the crime genre and can bring a certain level of performative polish to Dark Heart and there’s good chemistry between lead Tom Riley and director Colin Teague who worked together on Da Vinci’s Demons.
Will this new six-part detective thriller be enough to give Luther a run for its money? We hope so.
Dark Heart release date: TBD but likely to be sometime this autumn
