VIDEO: David Tennant’s Most Tense And Powerful Deadwater Fell Scenes

Image
All4 have released a video of David Tennant’s most tense and powerful scenes from their recent drama series Deadwater Fell. 

The critically acclaimed drama, 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.
Watch the video below:

The series can be bought on DVD from Amazon here.
It can also be downloaded from Amazon here and iTunes here.
