THE HIDDEN GEM that’s been making waves in Wales, Keeping Faith, is set to arrive on BBC One and gets its UK premiere on DVD thanks to Acorn Media International.
Eve Myles star of Broadchurch and Torchwood, plays the eponymous lead, in this thrilling drama that was filmed simultaneously in English and Welsh. Originally airing on BBC Wales in its native tongue, as Un Bore Mercher, the series has become the most popular show on the channel in more than 20 years, and now makes its national debut on BBC One and arrives on DVD on 3 September 2018.
Set against the stunning backdrop of rural Wales, we meet Faith Howells (Myles), a lawyer on maternity leave after the birth of her third child. When her husband and business partner, Evan (Bradley Freegard – Under Milk Wood), mysteriously disappears, her life is turned upside down.
The stay-at-home, fun-loving, carefree mother must turn detective and powerhouse, taking huge risks to solve the mystery and protect her family. But she soon discovers that her beautiful, idyllic home town, set on the estuary, harbours many dark secrets that threaten the lives of her and the people she loves most.
This eight-part series was created by Matthew Hall (Dark Shadows) and stars Mark Lewis Jones (Stella), Hannah Daniel (Hinterland) and Matthew Gravelle (Broadchurch).
