Not many people know what a dubbing mixer is. 

David Drake wants to change that, having worked on shows like Fleabag, The Bay and The End of the F***ing World.

There are a few key roles in a sound team: the dialogue editor effects editor, foley artist, composer and dubbing mixer. 

“A dubbing mixer is someone who takes all those elements, the dialogue, effects, music, then mixes, processes and treats them so you end up with a finished soundtrack,” Drake explains.

Christie plays a detective sergeant and family liaison officer, who is embedded to offer support to the family of missing teenage twins, which allows her to investigate their disappearance from within.
