What is Deadwater Fell About?
Revealing the origins and outcomes of the violent, unthinkable tragedy in the fictional Scottish village of Kirkdarroch, Deadwater Fell is a captivating forensic dissection of two relationships: trusted GP Tom Kendrick (Tennant) and his beloved wife who works as a local elementary school teache, Kate (Anna Madeley, Patrick Melrose, The Crown, Utopia), schoolteacher Jess Milner (Jumbo) and police sergeant Steve Campbell (Matthew McNulty, Versailles, Cleaning Up, The Terror). Kendrick (Tennant) is a trusted, admired and well-liked member of the community and a doting father of three little girls, a seemingly loving husband whose marriage to Kate (Madeley) seems perfect. But on one night, the illusion of happiness and contentment is shattered when the community is drawn to Kate and Tom as their house in the woods were swallowed by flickering fire and the smell of smoke. Amid the confusion, Kate and her children are found dead, and Tom, found unconscious in his bed, is rushed to the hospital. As more suspicious details from that night emerge, Jess – who is Kate’s best friend and closest confidant – becomes desperate to understand what could have led to such a tragedy, and what secrets lay at the root of this horrific act.
