The BBC has pushing this new “pre-apocalyptic” drama hard in terms of coverage, but whether it can live up to the hype is another matter.
Angyness Deyn and Jim Strugess play cops DI Elaine Renko and DCI Charlie Hicks who in their first job together investigate a murder. During this however they uncover a terrifying secret: in five years time the Sun will destroy all life on Earth. Not only that, but the government already know about this and will go to any lengths to prevent the information from spreading.
Hard Sun is on BBC One at 21.35.
