Things only get more dangerous for both characters as they dive deeper into London's underworld and discover a huge conspiracy which will have consequences for more than just Black Doves.

The writer has joked that he worked on the thriller while "fuelled by cream liquor" over the Christmas holidays in 2022.

Joe Barton continued: "To be now going into production with a cast and crew full of people whose work I admire so much is unbelievably exciting and I couldn’t be more thrilled to get to see this show come to life."
