With the first episode airing on Monday 26th, it will then be on every night until the final episode on Friday 30th April.

The teacher’s partner is the prime suspect, and their shared home can be seen from single mum Zoe’s house.

The synopsis reads: "The gripping new drama follows a tense police surveillance investigation into a tight knit Manchester community and explores whether it is ever possible to observe the lives of others with true objectivity and zero effect."

While Noel Clarke takes on the lead role as Martin Young, Alexandra Roach plays single mum Zoe Sterling.

Fehinti Balogun, Catherine Tyldesley and Bronagh Waugh are also in the cast.

Speaking about what viewers can expect from the series, former Coronation Street actress Catherine told Heart.co.uk and other press: “It’s going to be very addictive for people.

“It’s real ‘edge of your seat’ stuff and it’s so well written. We all love a good nosey and I think that’s what’s addictive.

“You feel like you shouldn't be seeing these things and I know what’s coming when I watch it but I still felt a little bit naughty.”

Noel added he was attracted to the ‘calmness’ of the role, telling us: “There was a stillness and real calm about the writing.

“I’ve never had this opportunity to play a role like this, it was a no brainer for me to be able to do it.”
