Sammy Winward as Lucy and Philip as David Murdoch
Prey, ITV Wednesday 9th December 9pm
Philip stars in the second season of ITV’s hit drama series Prey which starts Wednesday 9th December at 9pm….
Philip takes the role of Prison Officer David Murdoch whose life becomes complicated when on a routine visit to a Manchester hospital with female prisoner Jules Hope (MyAnna Buring) events spiral out of control. David takes a phone call, which will change his life forever, and he suddenly finds himself on the wrong side of the law.
With the life of his heavily pregnant daughter, Lucy (Sammy Winward), threatened, David has no alternative but to go ‘on the run’ and inadvertently becomes ‘the prey.’
Unaware of the danger to Emma, DS Susan Reinhardt, whose personal happiness seems forever blighted, tries to unravel why David is suddenly behaving totally out of character. With his reputation as a prison officer intact, Reinhardt attempts to unravel why he makes every effort to strenuously dodge the Police.
In some amazing chase sequences, Reinhardt and her new colleague, DC Richard Iddon (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), go in pursuit as a desperate David handcuffs himself to Jules. She is his only bargaining tool as he sets out to move ‘heaven and earth’ to find his beloved daughter.
The cast of Prey also includes Kieran O’Brien (Silk, Love Life) and Lisa Millet (Cucumber, The Paradise).
The three part series is executive produced by RED founder Nicola Shindler (Banana, Cucumber, Ordinary Lies, Happy Valley), produced by Tom Sherry (Prey, Scott & Bailey, Ordinary Lies) and directed by Lewis Arnold (Banana, Misfits, Humans).
