Channel 5 thriller series The Catch, starring Jason Watkins, Aneurin Barnard, and Poppy Gilbert began last month. The series is adapted from the 2020 T.M. Logan mystery novel of the same name, and follows a grieving fisherman who goes to desperate lengths to protect his family when he becomes suspicious of his daughter’s new boyfriend.
The series is directed by Robert Quinn, whose previous credits include dramas Ackley Bridge, and The Bay, and crime comedy series No Offence, and was adapted for the screen by Silent Witness writer Michael Crompton.
The Catch was filmed in Ireland, largely around Dublin, but is set in an English coastal town. This is what will happen in each episode, and when the series will end.
