Episode 1 - Hollow Shore

As dawn breaks in the sleepy market town of Southcliffe, the unmistakable sound of gunshots ring out. The residents of this tight-knit community wake to discover an inconceivable horror has devastated the town. The lives of those left behind are changed forever. Up to this point, these are small lives marked by ordinary adversity. Stephen Morton (Sean Harris) is a loner who cares tenderly for his dying mother, Queenie, in their meagre end-of-terrace house. Chris Cooper (Joe Dempsie) is a soldier returning home from Afghanistan to his doting wife, Louise (Hayley Squires). Paul Gould (Anatol Yusef) is an arrogant pub landlord who carelessly disregards the efforts of his handyman, Morton. Claire Salter (Shirley Henderson) is a committed social worker, carer to Queenie, consumed by her own private anxieties. On this morning, a spree-killer suddenly and randomly commits a spate of shootings, leaving the innocent residents of Southcliffe faced with emotions they are unequipped to understand or deal with. Questions, guilt and ghosts from the past are unleashed as their resilience is tested, both as individuals and as a community. Reporter David Whitehead (Rory Kinnear), a journalist who grew up in Southcliffe, finds himself back there looking for answers from the shattered community whilst trying to reconcile dark events from his own past.
