Starring Morven Christie and written by the award-winning Daragh Carville, The Bay is a beautifully crafted crime drama rooted in the families and communities of a distinctive coastal town.
In the debut season, Family Liaison Officer Lisa Armstrong is assigned to a missing persons investigation that, at first, seems like any other – tragic, but all too familiar. But there’s something very different about this particular case. With horror, Lisa realises she has a personal connection with this frightened family – one that could compromise her and the investigation.
Season two begins with Lisa at a low ebb, forced to do menial police work. However, when a new case involving a shocking murder within a loving family emerges, Lisa is called upon once again. Facing huge challenges at work and at home, Lisa must get under the skin of this new family and prove her worth – to her colleagues, to her family and to herself.
The third instalment welcomes DS Jenn Townsend, Morecambe’s new Family Liaison Officer, as she is thrown in the deep end when a body is found in the bay on her first day in the job. She must get under the skin of a grieving and complicated family if she has any chance of solving the murder, whilst at the same time proving herself to her new colleagues in the Major Investigation Unit.
