Rising star Sophie Rundle (The Bletchley Circle, Episodes), takes the lead alongside Russell Tovey (Being Human, Him & Her), Mark Lewis Jones (Stella, Titanic), Michael Smiley (Utopia, Luther) and Christine Tremarco (Good Cop, Five Days) in an exciting new two-part crime drama, Talking To The Dead.

The Cardiff-based thriller tells the modern story of wayward police officer, DC Fiona Griffiths (Rundle), who suffers from a secret history of Cotard’s Syndrome; a mental illness which has left her with a deep and peculiar empathy for the dead.

Adapted by Golden Globe Award nominee Gwyneth Hughes (The Girl, Five Days), Talking To the Dead is based on an original novel of the same name from acclaimed author, Harry Bingham (The Sons Of Adam, The Lieutenant’s Lover).

Commenting on her new role, Sophie Rundle said, “I’m very excited to be playing my first lead role in such a compelling crime story. Fiona is a complex and intricate character who offers such an original take on the usual depiction of the established detectives. I’m looking forward to trying my hand at the art of self defence and really embrace Fiona’s fighting spirit.”
