Episode 3
 
Tom (Stephen Moyer) makes a key break in the case. Tom links Roger Lane (Andrew Tiernan), an estate agent, to a number of locations related to the Crow abductions.  
 
Roger Lane is arrested. Jane grills him and the circumstantial evidence is telling. He’s associated with a number of the crime scenes. Not only that, but Simon Duke (Jason Watkins) picks Lane out of an ID parade. It transpires that Simon has worked for Lane in the past, photographing properties. However, despite these links Jane (Sunetra Sarker) is forced to let Lane go due to a lack of hard evidence. She and Tom are hugely frustrated. 
 
This is compounded when Lane gives Vedder (Gary Cargill), who is tailing him, the slip. The Crow is now at large.
 
Meanwhile, after Dani (Sacha Parkinson) gets herself in trouble the shocking reason behind her mistrust of John (Ashley Walters) is finally revealed.
 
 
Series overview
 
Safe House, produced by leading independent production company Eleventh Hour Films, returns to ITV with an all new cast and crime story.
 
The series stars internationally renowned British actor Stephen Moyer (True Blood, The Bastard Executioner, Shots Fired) as charismatic yet impulsive ex-police officer Tom Brook who runs this season's police safe house, which stands at the edge of the sea on the rugged coastline of Anglesey, a wild and beautiful sanctuary.  
 
Stephen is joined by actress Zoë Tapper (Mr Selfridge, Lewis) as his partner Sam. The drama has been written by Ed Whitmore (CSI, He Kills Coppers) and Tracey Malone (Born to Kill, Rillington Place) and directed by Marc Evans (Safe House S1, Collision).   
 
Tom and Sam’s world is turned upside down when news of a shocking crime breaks. Years previously Tom investigated a series of abductions perpetrated by an assailant known as 'The Crow’, who took wives away from their husbands as they helplessly watched. 
 
On hearing breaking news of a crime bearing the same hallmarks Tom heads to the crime scene, revealing to the police that, terrifyingly, he believes the Crow is active again.
 
The 4 x 60’ series also stars Dervla Kirwan, (Injustice, Blackout), Jason Watkins (Taboo, The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies), Sunetra Sarker (Ackley Bridge, Casualty), Ashley Walters (Cuffs, Top Boy), Sacha Parkinson (Mr Selfridge, The Driver) and Joel MacCormack (Wolf Hall). 
 
Eleventh Hour Films Creative Director Paula Cuddy (Strike Back, Wallander) is the Executive Producer alongside company founder and Chief Executive Jill Green (New Blood, Collision). Andrew Benson (Strike Back, Prime Suspect) has produced the new season.
