BERTIE CARVEL stars in Hidden, the brand new, gripping four-part conspiracy thriller from Origin Pictures and BBC Northern Ireland. The show premieres tomorrow night, Thursday October 6th at 9pm on BBC1.
Directed by Niall MacCormick (Albatross, Wallander, The Long Walk To Finchley), the thriller is set across London and Paris at a time when Britain is in a state of political turmoil: there is rioting on the streets and the coalition government has collapsed. The drama centres on Harry Venn (played by Phil Glenister), a high street solicitor who is forced to delve back into his murky past. When a mysterious lawyer, Gina Hawkes (Thekla Reuten) turns up asking Harry to find a missing alibi witness for her client, he agrees to take on the job but becomes unwittingly drawn into investigating the death of his brother twenty years ago. Harry quickly finds himself caught up in a much bigger and more complex conspiracy…
