Did you watch The Tower?

For those unaware, the police drama, which has been adapted from the first of a series of detective novels by Kate London, follows Detective Sergeant Sarah Collins as she investigates the mysterious and sudden deaths of a police officer and a teenage girl, who both fall to their death from a tower block in east London.

Leading the drama is Gemma Whelan who takes on the role as detective Sarah Collins. Viewers will recognise Gemma from her many parts in TV shows such as Game of Thrones, Gentleman Jack, Emma and Killing Eve.

Appearing alongside Gemma is Tahirah Sharif who plays Lizzie Adama, a police officer who, after recently qualifying, is found with a five-year-old boy on top of the tower block from which two people fell to their demise. Could she be the key eye-witness to help find out what really happened?
