Thomas Aldersley shoots the role of Brian Fay in In The Dark, an upcoming drama for BBC One written by Danny Brocklehurst.
Characterful, darkly funny and with themes relevant to our times, In The Dark is an incredibly personal drama series. With visceral emotional dilemmas at the epicentre of the crime stories, it is anchored on Helen Weeks and her journey towards motherhood.
In the first two-parter, Helen discovers she is pregnant, but before she can confront her tricky issue of whether the child is her partner Paul’s or the result of an affair, she is compelled to go back to her hometown when her best friend from school is drawn into the centre of a media storm – her husband has been arrested for the abduction of two young girls and in a world of 24-hour news and trial by media, the local cops are under enormous pressure to get their man. But is he the right man? Helen must solve the case by confronting both her present and her past – digging deep into the secrets of her childhood, just as she’s contemplating bringing a new life into the world.Overview
