Episode 2
The search for Julie Delaney intensifies. But Tom (Stephen Moyer) and Sam (Zoe Tapper) have to deal with a restless John Channing (Ashley Walters) and an emotional Dani (Sacha Parkinson). 
Tom and Sam are surprised that John seems to be continuing to run his business under such intense, traumatic circumstances. However, it’s when John steals away to meet a dubious associate in a car park that Tom really begins to worry. It also becomes clear that Dani is incredibly wary of her mother’s boyfriend. Soon Tom and Sam fear that John may somehow be involved in Julie’s disappearance.
Meanwhile, Tom’s former boss Elizabeth Ellroy (Dervla Kirwan) turns up looking for answers. She clearly doesn’t want Tom around the case. And Vedder (Gary Cargill) is no different. Sam is left wondering what the real reasons Tom left the Police force were. He’s keeping tight-lipped but Sam knows Tom is hiding something from her. Something big.
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.
