‘Prey’ (Season 1)

Three part miniseries, Prey is a solid police drama as DS Marcus Farrow (John Simm) finds himself charged with the murder of his ex-wife and young son.

As a dead body is found long buried on the moors outside Manchester, a once-closed case takes centre stage as Farrow and partner/best mate DI Sean Devlin (Craig Parkinson) are assigned to the investigation. But things quickly go pear-shaped as secrets thought to be buried are quickly uncovered. Gangland crime and police corruption bubbles to the surface – with Farrow caught centre stage. Now on the run, he must prove his innocence – with DI Susan Reinhardt (Rosie Caviliero) leading the hunt, convinced of his guilt.

Prey is a tightly written and acted drama with little in terms of extraneous trappings: a taught, tough narrative.
