The Thief, His Wife and the Canoe

Eddie Marsan heads the cast in the astounding true-life story of John Darwin, who hatched a plan to fake his own death and claim the life insurance.

Trigger Point

Coming from the pen of Jed ‘Line of Duty’ Mercurio you would expect this bomb disposal drama to be full of gut-wrenching twists, fiendish double-crosses, and, of course, nail-biting races against time. And you would be right to expect that, because that’s exactly what you get.
