The talented creative team behind The Light in the Hall has created a gripping thriller which leaves both the victim’s mother and the viewer similarly desperate for answers. It’s been great to see U.K. audiences already engaging with and enjoying the series, and we’re sure new audiences from all over the world will be as captivated by the series as we are.”
