In the drama, her character’s husband is shot dead in mysterious circumstances, and she is forced to confront some uncomfortable truths about her marriage as she delves into his final days.

Writer Matt Charman said: “Sheridan Smith is a dream to write for because as an actress there’s really nothing she can’t do. “
