‘The stuff of nightmares...'

Eve Myles won an army of new fans with her portrayal of solicitor and mum Faith Howells in word-of-mouth hit Keeping Faith.

But when TV Times met the always-lovely actor last October at a former pub in east London where she was busy filming Alibi’s new cat-and-mouse thriller We Hunt Together, it was clear her character, damaged cop DS Lola Franks, is a million miles away from Faith.

‘I have to challenge myself,’ says Eve, 41. ‘This is a completely different character to get my head around. It goes against my natural instincts. But that’s why we do it.’

The six-part series, which features former EastEnder Nigel Harman and Kris Marshall (Death in Paradise, Sanditon) among its guest stars, sees prickly Lola battling her own demons as she and her new work partner, breezy DI Jackson Mendy (Dark Money’s Babou Ceesay) pursue a pair of disturbed murderers – manipulative Freddy Lane (The Halcyon’s Hermione Corfield) and former child solider Baba Lenga (Baghdad Central’s Dipo Ola).
