BBC Releases First Trailer For ‘Trust Me’ Season 2 Starring Alfred Enoch, Ashley Jenson, Richard Rankin & John Hannah
Medical drama ‘Trust Me‘ returns later this year to BBC One for a 2nd Season, but with some major casting changes, as Season 1’s Jodie Whittaker regenerates into ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ star Alfred Enoch.
Created and written by Dan Sefton, Season 2 of the drama brings an entirely new cast to Glasgow, which also includes the brilliant John Hannah (‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’, ‘Spartacus’), Ashley Jensen (‘Extras’, ‘Catastrophe’) and Richard Rankin (‘Outlander’, ‘The Crimson Field’).
Set on the neurological unit of Glasgow Hospital, Enoch (‘Harry Potter’, ‘How to Get Away with Murder’) stars as Corporal Jamie McCain, a survivor of a shock enemy attack. Recovering from a spinal injury which has left him temporarily paralysed, Jamie faces a new enemy as fellow patients on the ward die unexpectedly around him.
As Jamie obsessively searches for the truth, his investigation drags him and the clinical staff into their own unnerving nightmares. But with his behaviour becoming increasingly erratic, is the threat real or imagined and is Jamie a man we can trust?
Hannah stars as clinical lead, Archie Watson, a doctor, whose awkward persona hides a seedier and more sinister side. Jensen takes the role of Debbie, a seemingly unimpeachable physiotherapist who is fiercely committed to her patients. However, there is a vulnerability to Debbie which makes her perfectly susceptible to being manipulated by a close colleague…
Rankin plays neurologist, Dr Alex Kiernan who, on the surface, is a fun and dedicated doctor but hides his steely ambition and we sense an implicit undercurrent of threat beneath his professional exterior.
Alfred Enoch has recently been starring as Wes in the Shondaland series ‘How to Get Away with Murder’, but will be well known to Potterheads as Dean Thomas in the ‘Harry Potter’ film series. Also, joining this new line-up are Katie Clarkson Hill, Jamie Michie, Chloe Harris, Amiera Darwish and Saskia Ashdown.
The first series of ‘Trust Me’ debuted on BBC One in August 2017, achieved a consolidated series average of six million viewers. The drama is a RED Production Company production for BBC One, and the 4-episode 2nd Season is directed by John Alexander (‘Jamestown’, ‘Sense & Sensibility’).
‘Trust Me‘ Season 2 will air on BBC One later in 2019.
