Right, so it’s a conspiracy drama called Paranoid. You can always count on ITV for “does what it says on the tin” programme titles. But if the name of the show might be a little bland, the trailer is anything but. There’s an impressive cast that includes Indira Varma (Game Of Thrones), Robert Glenister (Hustle), Neil Stuke (Silk, Doctor Foster), Lesley Sharp (Doctor Who’s incredible “Midnight”) and Kevin Doyle (Happy Valley), along with some cracking cinematography and heaps of edgy atmosphere.
A conspiracy thriller, Paranoid tells the story of a female GP who is murdered in a rural children’s playground with an abundance of eyewitnesses. A group of detectives embark on what seems to be a straightforward murder investigation, but as they delve deeper into the case they are quickly drawn into the twists and turns of an ever-darkening mystery, which takes them unexpectedly across Europe.
The drama is written by acclaimed writer and producer Bill Gallagher whose previous credits include The Paradise, Conviction, Love Life and Lark Rise To Candleford.
