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.
In Thorne: Sleepyhead
, the detective is dragged back into the nightmares of his past when young girls begin falling victim to sadistically induced strokes. Thorne knows there are more deaths to come, as the skillful predator enjoys toying with Thorne just as much as pursuing his sick fantasy.
Prepare to be thrilled and chilled in equal measure as ENCORE brings you a new take on crime drama.
