Rick Bacon: The Guilty

Date - 5 September, 2013, All News Television

New ITV drama, The Guilty starts tonight at 9pm featuring Rick Bacon.

Lives are torn apart when a young child goes missing in this three-part drama. Set across two timelines – 2008 and present day – and tells the story of DC Maggie Brand (Tamsin Greig), who investigates the disappearance of little Callum Reid whilst coping with her own young son’s diagnosis with autism.

Following an annual neighbourhood barbecue, Claire and Daniel Reid frantically search for Callum when they awake to find him missing. Katherine Kelly (Mr Selfridge, Coronation Street) and Darren Boyd (Case Sensitive, Dirk Gently) play the young couple living in hope that their son will one day be found.

Five years on, Arcadian Gardens is a very different place. An address synonymous with tragedy. The grief-stricken parents and their neighbours lives were torn apart by the events of that weekend, not least that of Callum’s big brother, Luke.

Then, on the eve of the fifth anniversary of his disappearance, Callum’s body is discovered, buried only yards from his own front door. And the nightmare begins all over again.
