Channel 5 is gearing up to engross audiences with brand new psychological thriller, Penance - a gritty drama with a family struggling with grief at its heart.

And the stellar cast is enough to make us watch it alone.

The three-part drama follows the lives of Luke Douglas (played by Line Of Duty star Neil Morrissey), his wife Rosalie (Julie Graham of The Bletchley Circle), and their teenage daughter, Maddie (Tallulah Greive of Millie in Between).

Following the loss of their son, Rosalie and Luke find their marriage under immense strain.

Rosalie and her daughter Maddie find themselves in the caring hands of the "charming and charismatic" Jed (Nico Mirallegro of Rillington Place), a young man who they encounter as bereavement counselling who is also suffering under the weight of his own loss.

Channel 5 tease: "Jed rekindles a hope for the future within the Douglas household. But underneath, a deadly and morally corrupt triangle is taking shape."

The drama is written by Kate O'Riordan and Ben Morris, while Maurice Sweeney directs.

Co-executive producer Jonathan Fisher said: "We are thrilled to have attracted such a talented cast to Kate O'Riordan's gripping family drama of lust and betrayal. With a top-rate production team in place, we can't wait to share this captivating and entertaining miniseries with our audience."

Julie Graham also stars as Rosalie Douglas (

To get your psychological thriller fix until then, hop over to Netflix where you can begin bingeing The Stranger.

The eight-part series centres on the life of Adam Price (Richard Armitage) and his picture perfect family setup.

But, when an unknown stranger reveals that his wife may have been keeping a dark secret from him, Adam goes on an obsessive quest to discover the truth.

Many viewers who have watched the series - based on a novel by the master of mystery thrillers Harlan Coben, - are dubbing it 'a total mind f***' and 'totally addictive'.

Penance is coming soon to Channel 5.
