Marcella is a new multi-stranded crime drama from internationally renowned screenwriter and novelist Hans Rosenfeldt (The Bridge). Set in contemporary London and starring Anna Friel, Marcella centers on the psychological struggles of a Metropolitan police officer at a crisis point in her personal life, driven by rejection and intuition. Co-created with Nicola Larder (The Tunnel), the series is Rosenfeldt's first drama created for an English speaking audience. Following his global success with The Bridge, Marcella captures Rosenfeldt's genius in creating truly compelling female characters. Returning to the Met's Murder Squad after a 12-year career break, Marcella is a detective in her late 30's who gave up her fast-tracked role to marry and devote her life to starting a family. With the abrupt end of her marriage to the love of her life and isolated from her daughter at boarding school, Marcella returns to work--her sense of self shattered. She is immediately assigned to one of her old cases that she first worked on in 2003. A spate of recent killings has occurred, all carrying the same hallmarks as those unsolved murders committed over a decade ago. Has the killer re-appeared or is this a copycat murderer? How will Marcella cope with returning to duty when her own temperament is so fragile and vulnerable? Will throwing herself into her work provide the answers she's seeking or lead her dangerously into territory she must avoid at all costs? Told in Rosenfeldt's unflinchingly clear Nordic style, the series leads the audience through an unpredictable narrative maze full of hooks and action with suspicion falling on nearly all of the characters right up until its final moments.

Episode 3

Marcella is traumatised. How could she have known where Grace's body was? Is she responsible for burying her there? Grace's body is discovered by the police and Marcella tries to keep her head, hiding the fact that she was one of the last people to see Grace alive. She's a capable liar with her colleagues. As Jason grieves the death of his girlfriend and Marcella struggles with her demons of what she might be capable of, when in fugue... the pair unexpectedly cling to each other. Their sex isn't a romantic revival, more the collision of two people lost in their own problems. Later, Marcella discovers the true extent of Jason's affair and enacts her own cruel revenge.
