Looking for something to watch this Halloween? THE SISTER, with Tim Plester, starts tonight on ITV.
The brand new four-part series is full of murder, intrigue, deception, the supernatural — and, according to ITV, “perhaps some ghosts”.
The Sister is based on Luther creator Neil Cross’ book, Burial, which in turn was inspired by a nightmare Cross had in 1985 about murdering a homeless man.
Nathan is a well-meaning man who’s spent years trying to atone for a terrible secret from his past, involving the disappearance of his wife’s sister, Elsie.
However, a decade into his new marriage with wife Holly and Nathan is visited by Bob, a figure from his old life who is somehow connected with Elsie’s disappearance.
Bob imparts shocking news to Nathan, resulting in “a series of catastrophic decisions which cleverly drive a tense and compelling narrative of psychological suspense, dread, love and possible redemption.”
Airing across four consecutive nights, 9pm, on ITV.
