6 part drama starts Friday nights


The drama introduces plain speaking, no nonsense DI Colette Cunningham, whose fearless approach to policing has earned her the respect of her Merseyside Police Serious Crime Squad colleagues.

Career driven and dedicated, Colette is unflappable and an absolute force of nature. Until she takes a call from Garda Sergeant Luke Byrne in Dublin.
The body of a young woman has been found and Colette is listed as the next of kin.

The name of the victim means nothing to Colette so she continues to efficiently go about her day job.



Persisting with his enquiry, the young officer calls again and begins to describe the young woman rendering Colette speechless.
She takes the next ferry to Dublin to identify the body of her missing daughter, Kate.


She’s experienced this exact situation a million times, but never from this side.
Kate left home 20 years ago aged 16, and clearly didn’t want to be found.Always a police woman and with 30 years of experience kicking in, Colette has some searching
questions.
But is she prepared for what she finds?


Acclaimed actress Paula Malcomson (The Hunger Games trilogy, Ray Donovan, Deadwood) will take the lead role in Redemption, a six part drama jointly commissioned by ITV and Virgin Media Television, Ireland in association with Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland.

Thanks as always @Blondeshavemorefun I'll look forward to this.

Still have The Bay to catch up this week, but my Saturday looks empty so might go for a double bill.

Watching this and enjoying it but can't get over the main character collette is meant to be old enough to have a 37 year old daughter and grandchildren in their late teens!!!!
She looks no older than 50 tops! which would mean she was 13 when she had her daughter, it's slightly doing my head in unless later on they reveal she was a young teenage mum.
Is it just me??
I'm 51 btw and have children the age of Collettes grandchildren !
She may be a good actress but seems to young for this part ???

Her accent's all over the place. Wish they'd cast someone with an authentic Scouse accent or who could at least do it consistently.

She said she had 53 years life experience so I'm guessing that's her age

In real life she's 51, so playing a couple of years older.

I think there were a few things that didn't make a lot of sense to me or seemed unlikely, but I'm just going with it as I feel overall it's worth watching so Il'll see what I think next week.

This!! It’s annoying. Give it to a proper scouse person.

@Rebel2 and @Blueberrycreampie be strong. Don't binge 😂

Enjoy weekly pace with us

I love her accent - assume she was Irish

Very weird she changed her will a week before she died

I would have asked who was guardian before her to the solicesters

Obv wasn't suicide

No, I won't! The poem - Down By The Sally Garden is one I know in song form. It's by WB Yeats and seems a strange choice for a child's favourite. Also, it's Irish and maybe there are some connections in the family - I know the Liverpudlian- Irish links are very strong. I'm thinking the father may be around somewhere?
