Series overview


Multi-award winning actresses Anna Friel, Sinead Keenan and Rosalind Eleazar star in gripping, emotional thriller, Deep Water, from Kudos.


Set against the beautiful and imposing backdrop of the Lake District, the series is written by BAFTA-nominated Anna Symon (Indian Summers, Mrs Wilson) and adapted from the Windermere series of novels by critically-acclaimed author Paula Daly.


The six part series follows the lives of three complex and vibrant women, each struggling to keep their heads above very deep water. Like all of us, they seek to do their best for their families, but face tough choices with difficult, and often messy repercussions. The women are connected by the school gates, each with children around the same age.


International Emmy winning actress Anna Friel (Marcella, Butterfly) plays mother of three, Lisa Kallisto, who juggles her hectic family life with running a business, which keeps her occupied at all hours. Chaotic and disorganised, Lisa, is married to Joe who works night and day as a taxi driver.


Physiotherapist Roz, played by RTS award-winning and BAFTA nominated actress Sinead Keenan (Little Boy Blue) once had a thriving private practice, but the debts run up by her soulmate Winston leave the family facing financial ruin. If she can pay off their debts they will get their lives back on track. Roz is offered help from an unexpected quarter. The decision she makes could change the course of her life.


Kate Riverty played by Screen Nation Rising Star Rosalind Eleazar (Howards End, Rellik) seems to have it all - wealthy and attractive and with a well-drilled and highly organised family life. Mother to Lucinda and Fergus, and married to Guy, Kate invites her friend Lisa and husband Joe to dinner, but the evening goes spectacularly wrong for Lisa after she makes a spontaneous



With a stunning home overlooking Lake Windermere, Kate and Guy appear to be two of life’s winners, but is it possible Kate is too good to be true?


Episode 3


Lisa and Joe come together to tackle a crisis at the kennels. Assuming that she has Joe’s support, Lisa begins to hope for a new future away from her problems with the Rivertys.


With no idea of Roz’s double life, Winston proposes marriage and Roz thinks it’s finally time to accept. But when Roz’s brother Pete makes his disapproval clear, Winston is tempted back into his old ways.


Guy is arrested for his attack on Nelson, and Joanne digs deeper into his past. Traumatised by events and still desperate to find Lucinda, he returns home to Kate.


Lisa is unable to escape from the Rivertys as she is summoned to Kate’s house to deliver Sally’s schoolwork; Kate is convinced that Lucinda will return and doesn’t want her to fall behind. Kate’s sister Alexa sends Adam round to Lisa’s house. She wants Lisa to look after their dogs while she looks after Kate. However, Adam is the last person Lisa wants to see.


Lisa opens up to Roz about her transgression with Adam and Roz dishes out good advice, but Roz is unable to reveal her own secret.
