There’s not a bauble in sight in this new four-part thriller airing nightly this week. David Oyelowo stars as Edward, an architect with sinister secrets. He lets out his impressive minimalist house to Jane (Gugu Mbatha-Raw). However, the tenancy comes with lots of rules. Jane later makes a discovery about the death of previous occupant Emma who lived there with her boyfriend (played by former EastEnders stars Jessica Plummer and Ben Hardy). An atmospheric chiller with more edges than a razor-wire fence.
