David Tennant's New Channel 4 True-Crime Series 'Deadwater Fell' Looks Seriously Chilling

David Tennant's New Channel 4 True-Crime Series 'Deadwater Fell' Looks Seriously Chilling

Looking for a new series to delve into now that Christmas is over? If you're a fiend for true crime than David Tennant's four-part thriller Deadwater Fell is sure to capture your attention.

Created and written by Daisy Coulam, the true crime-inspired Channel 4 fictional drama follows two families in the aftermath of a devastating crime (warning: spoilers ahead).

The seemingly happy family is murdered by someone they know and trust, which sends shockwaves through their small Scottish community of Kirkdarroch.

Former Doctor Who star David plays local GP Tom Kendrick and is the sole survivor of the fire that killed his wife Kate and their three little girls.

Speaking of the harrowing series, which will begin on 10th January, David, 48, said that the series is filled with twists and turns, adding that viewers will "constantly be surprised".

He told Digital Spy: "The story you think you're being told at the end of episode one is not the story that you realise you're being told in episode two, which again is not the story you thought you were in the midst of when you get to episode three.

"Whatever you think the story is, it will confound you, compel you and surprise you. As we unpeel the layers of what's gone on we learn things we don't expect about those families.

"It's about what happens behind closed doors, how we look at people's lives and think they're perfect when they're anything but and the fact we never really know our friends or the dangers behind closed doors."

Meanwhile, showrunner Daisy explained that she was inspired to write the series following the popularity of true crime documentaries - but wanted to give the narrative to the victims rather than the perpetrators.

The writer added that she wanted to show the impact of these crimes in a different light but also keep it "original" and "realistic".
