BAFTA Award-winning actor Martin Clunes (Doc Martin, Men Behaving Badly) “is a revelation” (The Telegraph, UK) in this chilling mystery based on true events that rocked Britain. When the battered body of a French student is found on Twickenham Green in London, hardworking and humble DCI Colin Sutton (Clunes) is appointed the lead detective on his first big case. Despite objections from his superiors, Sutton believes the young woman’s murder may be connected to a previous attack and embarks on a quest to catch a serial killer.
With the press in a frenzy and the public demanding answers, pressure mounts on the police to apprehend a suspect. Finding no motive, witnesses, or forensic evidence to rely upon, his team grows discouraged during the painstaking process, but Sutton’s commitment never wavers, often at the expense of his relationship with his wife (Claudie Blakley, Grantchester, Pride & Prejudice). Realistically portraying the ins and outs of police investigations, Manhunt tells the story of one detective’s uncompromising search for justice.
