BAFTA Award nominated actress Olivia Colman (Tyrannosaur, Twenty Twelve, Rev) will co-star in The Suspicions of Mr Whicher II : The Murder In Angel Lane alongside Paddy Considine (The Bourne Ultimatum, Submarine, Red Riding), who returns to the role of Jack Whicher following the success of film drama The Suspicions of Mr Whicher, which aired on ITV in April 2011.
Produced by Hat Trick Productions, The Suspicions of Mr Whicher II is based on the life and times of Inspector Jonathan 'Jack' Whicher, the real-life pioneering detective who worked in the newly established Detective Branch of the Metropolitan Police during the 19th Century.  
In the new film Olivia plays Susan Spencer, who employs Mr Whicher as a private inquiry agent to investigate the savage murder of her niece, 16-year-old Mary.
