No More Dying Then

We filmed in a house near Southampton which was completely redecorated to fit this lady’s exotic character. They even brought in a different bed! I was nervous at first, but there isn’t time to get embarrassed. You’re busy trying to make the scene work, and there’s a crew of 50 people around you.

Christopher Ravenscroft 2

An unsolved case, the disappearance of ten-year-old Stella Rivers, still haunts DCI Wexford. Now, one year later, another child is missing. Wexford’s investigations are further complicated when the recently widowed Mike Burden begins an affair with the missing child’s mother that threatens to jeopardise both the case and Mike’s career.
