Series overview
 
Created by BAFTA winning writer, Paula Milne, HIM is a new three-part ‘domestic horror’ that focuses on a 17-year-old boy known only throughout the drama as ‘HIM’ who is caught in limbo between childhood and adulthood. 
 
Trapped in emotional flux between the two homes of his divorced parents, each now remarried with new families, ‘HIM’ is the cuckoo in both their nests, a reminder of the failure of their past and a threat to their new-found domestic bliss.  
 
Like any teenager, he is riding a rollercoaster of confusing emotions and finds it hard to process his feelings, but ‘HIM’ has the added complication of a primal struggle to contain the terrifying secret of a supernatural power he has inherited from his grandfather. With only his aging grandmother understanding his gift, ‘HIM’ must fight his anger and frustration to take control and use his powers for good before they end in tragedy. 
 
Starring newcomer Fionn Whitehead, Katherine Kelly, James Murray, Patrick Robinson, Lucy Liemann and Simona Brown, this striking and original drama focuses on life’s major themes: the painful breakdown of relationships, love, loss, betrayal and passion. At the heart of the story is HIM’s rite of passage from boyhood to manhood as he struggles not to lose his humanity and control his supernatural power.
 
Episode 3
 
When therapist, Ross’s (Alec Newman) whole scientific belief system is called into question after he witnesses HIM’s (Fionn Whitehead) powers first-hand, he is determined to find a way to help his patient. Is there anyone he can trust with this life-changing secret though?
 
Meanwhile, following the accident, Azfal (Aaron Phagura) remains unconscious in intensive care. With his family and Faith (Simona Brown) praying for him to wake up, HIM feels helpless, particularly when Faith berates him for running from the scene. Will HIM find a way to use his powers for good to help his friend?
 
HIM’s parents also come to a decision on how best to help their son. However, HIM comes to a painful and irrevocable decision of his own as to how to protect those closest to him.
