The dark UK series Deadwater Fell is coming to BBC First in Australia from March 12th. The gripping four-part psychological drama was created by Daisy Coulam and stars David Tennant as Tom Kendrick, a respected GP in a close Scottish community, whose family die tragically in a house fire which was started deliberately.

Deadwater Fell

When a seemingly perfect and happy family is murdered by someone they know and trust, the small Scottish community they call home becomes riven with mistrust and suspicion as those closest to the family begin to question everything they thought they knew about their friends. Deadwater Fell examines in unflinching detail the nature of female friendship and the harmful, entrenched gender stereotypes and conformity that can lead to the most devastating consequences.

Channel 4 Celebrates Deadwater Fell's Ratings Performance (Contains Spoilers)

Image
The critically acclaimed Channel 4 drama Deadwater Fell, starring David Tennant, Anna Madeley, Cush Jumbo and Matthew McNulty, concluded last month, bringing focus on the sadly often misunderstood and undetected subjects of domestic abuse and coercive control. Expecting a traditional murder mystery, viewers tried to guess who had set the fire that took the lives of a mother and her three daughters. However, as is the case for many victims of abuse, there was no clever twist for Kate, and her own requests for help went unheard as those around her (and the viewers) chose to believe a clever and manipulative individual instead.

Deadwater Fell proved to be a ratings winner for Channel 4 with a series average of 4.4 million viewers, giving an average audience share of 17.6%.  This made it the most successful series by Channel 4 since 2018's Kiri. It has also been the biggest ever drama on Channel 4's streaming service All 4.
