Joining Moyer is Zoë Tapper (Mr Selfridge) as his partner Sam, as well as Dervla Kirwan, (Injustice, Blackout), Jason Watkins (Taboo), Sunetra Sarker (Casualty), Ashley Walters (Cuffs), Sacha Parkinson (Mr Selfridge) and Joel MacCormack (Wolf Hall).
The 4 x 60’ series kicks off when Tom and Sam’s world is turned upside down by news of a shocking crime. Years previously, Tom investigated a series of abductions perpetrated by an assailant known as ‘The Crow’, who took wives away from their husbands as they helplessly watched. On hearing breaking news of a crime bearing the same hallmarks Tom heads to the crime scene, revealing to the police that, terrifyingly, he believes The Crow is active again.
ITV’s Controller of Drama Victoria Fea who commissioned this second series, said: “We’re delighted to be returning with a brand new series of Safe House. The format lends itself beautifully to creating a suspenseful drama with a new set of characters in a new safe house. As always the scripts are gripping and compelling with twists and turns that will shock and take viewers by surprise.”
About his character, Moyer said: “Tom Brook on the surface is a solid, confident, happy man. But there is something lurking under the surface from his past that he has managed to hide. Having been a police officer, he’s now helping to run a safe house and has re-invented a new life for himself. He and his partner are also running a little sailing school and that’s paying the bills. Then he catches a piece of news that brings something from his past back into his life. It’s almost like he’s been switched back on and he cannot stop himself from becoming active and alive again.”
