Molly Windsor (Cheat), Laura Fraser (The Loch) and Jennifer Spence (You Me Her) are set to join Line of Duty’s Martin Compston in Amelia Bullmore’s (Scott & Bailey) new drama as three forensic scientists who aim to discover the truth behind an unsolved murder.

The crime thriller follows Emma Hedges (Molly Windsor), a new lab assistant who joins the Scottish Institute of Forensic Science and Anatomy (SIFA) and discovers a fictitious case of a murder scene that bares a striking resemblance to memories from her past.

The eight part thriller follows Adam Price (Richard Armitage), a happily married man who is shocked to discover that his wife Corinne has kept a dark secret.

Adam does his best to hide the devastating secret but ends up tangled in a wider conspiracy which could put lives in danger.

The Stranger was one of my most challenging novels — and definitely the most twisted,” said Harlan Coben, who will be an executive producer on the series.

“When I wrote it, I never imagined that I’d be part of a ‘Dream Team’ of extraordinary talent bringing it to life.”
