Centering on the complex and unpredictable Detective Inspector Tom Thorne (David Morrissey), this ENCORE Original delves into a pair of spine-tingling, unspeakable crimes. Adapted from two favorites in Mark Billingham’s bestselling series of novels, Sleepyhead
& Scaredy Cat lead Thorne on an intense chase through chilling crime scenes, deliberately manipulated clues and, ultimately, the darkest depths of London.
When two female victims turn out to be killed in the exact same way in Thorne: Scaredy Cat
, Thorne finds himself on the hunt for not one, but two serial killers. Are they working together, yet killing separately? The answer will unravel a case that reaches back ten dark years.
Prepare to be thrilled and chilled in equal measure as ENCORE brings you a new take on crime drama.
