All three episodes of the BBC crime drama mini-series set in London's Ugandan community. Shaun Parkes stars as Scotland Yard detective Moses Jones, who - along with his young assistant Dan Twentyman (Matt Smith) - is assigned to investigate after a mutilated body is found in the Thames that appears to be the product of a witchcraft killing.
“Well acted and wittily written, and so exciting you can't wait for the second episode.” --Independent
BBC TV’s atmospheric and vibrant crime thriller. A bizarrely mutilated body, a wave of violence and a wall of silence from a frightened immigrant community – a disturbing case for a desperate detective.
"… the seething underbelly of London's Ugandan community, a world of crime, clubs and struggle that pulses to the beat of the best soundtrack you'll hear on TV this year." --Metro
When the badly mutilated body of a man is pulled out of the Thames, cynical Scotland Yard detective Moses Jones is taken off an udercover case and put to work with naive, hopeful Detective Sergeant Dan Twentyman. It's soon clear this is no ordinary murder investigation, becoming for Moses the most important case of his career and a bewildering journey of self discovery.
Unsure if they are dealing with a ritual murder, organised crime or the work of a serial killer, the detectives dig further – uncovering random beatings, a torched brothel, a former Commnwealth boxing champ, and the Afrigo Club, where kingpin Afrobeat band leader Solomon and his celebrated band, 'The Mutilators', play five nights a week to their homesick bretheren.
As the violence escalates, Moses' investigation becomes a frightening quest to track down his man before the community implodes... and the killer strikes again.
