The Shadow Line

Detective Inspector Jonah Gabriel (Chiwetel Ejiofor) takes on his first case since being shot in a botched police operation that left his partner dead. The new case involves investigating the murder of recently pardoned drug baron Harvey Wratten. On the other side of the criminal divide, Joseph Bede (Christopher Eccleston), a former associate of Wratten's, is moved to make his own enquiries. As Gabriel, dogged by amnesia and suspicious colleagues, follows a complicated line of investigation and Bede becomes increasingly desperate to see through a massive drugs operation that will enable him to step out of the business forever, the enigmatic and ruthless Gatehouse (Stephen Rea) emerges from the shadows to bring the story to a shocking climax... 7 episodes.
