Created by David Macpherson and directed by John Strickland (Bodyguard), the six-part series follows the crew of the Kinloch Bravo oil rig stationed off the Scottish coast in the North Sea’s treacherous waters.

Just as they are due to be collected and returned to the mainland from the remote rig, a mysterious, all-enveloping fog envelops the crew, hitting the station with massive tremors. As the crew find themselves cut off from all communication with the shore and the outside world, they struggle to discover what’s driving this unknown force.

New cast confirmed for Guilt as series two begins filming

Neil Forsyth has written another twisting thriller that picks up where the first series left off, with brothers Max (Mark Bonnar) and Jake (Jamie Sives) facing the consequences of their accidental killing of an old man.

Sara Vickers, Phyllis Logan, Stuart Bowman and Ian Pirie will join returning cast Bonnar, Sives and Emun Elliott.

Bonnar said: “I’m completely overjoyed that Guilt is getting a second series! Neil has crafted four amazing scripts with some cracking new characters and an immensely involving plot, full of twists and turns.
