The four-part series is based around a Missing Persons Unit and the hunt for serial killers who prey on the vulnerable.
Co-starring Alex Kingston as civilian analyst Ruth Hattersley and Noel Clarke as DI Carl Prior.
I had the pleasure of interviewing all three leading cast members on location earlier this year.

Chasing Shadows Wylie ITV Interviews
I’ve now seen the first two episodes of the series, written and created by Rob Williams, having also read all four scripts at the outset.
Sean is a fascinating character in a world of darkness and light with the potential for many different stories.
There are terrific performances from Reece, Alex and Noel as the relationships of their characters develop.
Against a backdrop of locations adding to the “lost” feel of those the team are seeking to find before it’s too late.
By the end of the second episode you may find yourself agreeing with Rob that this is not “just another crime show”.
