Anne-Marie Duff (Shameless, The Virgin Queen) will lead the cast of From Darkness, a new psychological crime drama originating from BBC Writersroom, written by Katie Baxendale (Sugar Rush) and produced by BBC Drama North for BBC One.
Her first original commission, Katie Baxendale’s From Darkness is a 4x60 series directed by Dominic Leclerc (Call The Midwife, The Syndicate) starring Anne-Marie Duff as Claire Church, a former police officer who left the Greater Manchester Police (GMP) in the mid-Nineties after the impact of violence became too overwhelming for her to continue.
From Darkness was developed by BBC Drama North from an original pitch as part of a BBC Writersroom scheme and is distributed by BBC Worldwide.

Hilary Martin, Head of BBC Drama North, and Oliver Kent are the executive producers, and the producer is Helen Ziegler.

It was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC One and Ben Stephenson, Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning.
Filming begins shooting in Manchester and Scotland in March, and further casting will be announced in due course.

On the role, Anne-Marie Duff says: "Katie Baxendale has created a beautifully complex character in her female protagonist. As soon as I started to read episode one I felt excited at the prospect of being involved. It's a world in which all of the characters have real stories to tell. Also I loved the BBC series The Village and one of its directors, Dominic Leclerc, will be our director on this. I couldn't be happier."
