The Shadow Line, DVD DVD


All seven episodes of the BBC conspiracy thriller written and directed by Hugo Blick.

Detective Inspector Jonah Gabriel (Chiwetel Ejiofor) is back in the saddle after being shot in a botched operation that left his partner dead.

His new case is an investigation into the murder of drug baron Harvey Wratten.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the law, Joseph Bede (Christopher Eccleston), a former associate of Wratten's, is busy with his own enquiries.

As the emotionally troubled Gabriel begins to untangle a complex web of intrigue and Bede grows increasingly desperate to see through the drugs operation that will enable him to step out of the business forever, the enigmatic and ruthless Gatehouse (Stephen Rea) emerges from the shadows to bring matters to a shocking climax.

Rafe Spall, Kierston Wareing and Lesley Sharp co-star.
