Deadwater Fell

Deadwater Fell follows the impact of a terrible tragedy on a close community. Filmed entirely on location in Scotland, the series is set in the small fictional town of Kirkdarroch. 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... Laying bare the fragility of trust and the corrosive nature of lies, the series demonstrates that even the closest of friends all have their secrets. 

Deadwater Fell also stars Anna Madeley and Matthew McNulty. The drama was created by Daisy Coulam and directed by Lynsey Miller. Executive Producers are Emma Kingsman-Lloyd and Karen Wilson, David Tennant and Daisy Coulam with Caroline Levy producing.
