If you’ve developed an unhealthy habit of peering into your neighbours’ windows over the last 12 months, the new ITV crime thriller Viewpoint will be right up your alley.
Taking place over five consecutive nights, the show has been co-created by Fleabag director Harry Bradbeer and Manhunt writer Ed Whitmore.
The programme is described by ITV as ‘a contemporary, character-driven mystery with a seductively intimate feel’, as it explores a police surveillance instigation into a Manchester community.
Reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Rear Window, Bafta winner and former Doctor Who actor Noel Clarke will star in the leading role of surveillance detective DC Martin King, who sets up an observation post in the home of single mum Zoe Sterling (Alexandra Roach).
This gives him the chance to see directly into the house of a missing primary school teacher Gemma Hillman (Amy Wren), which she shares with her boyfriend and prime suspect Greg Sullivan (Fehinti Balogun).
