Vicky is adored for her role as DI Kate Fleming

The Trigger Point actress will play Stella Tomlinson, whose world is turned upside down when her 14-year-old daughter Maisie is murdered. When her body is found dead at their family home, a hooded, bloodied man named Charles Stone stands over her. Charles is then imprisoned, but three years later, the two make contact. Sounds intriguing!

Playing the part of Charles is Johnny Harris, who is perhaps best-known for his roles in The Salisbury Poisonings, This is England '86 and Snow White and the Huntsman.
