Clémence Poésy and the International Emmy award winning Stephen Dillane return for the second series of Ben Richards’ multi-award winning The Tunnel. A high-volume, geo-political, bi-lingual thriller, the series moves between the coasts of Kent and Northern France via the Eurotunnel, against a backdrop of a continent in crisis. Commander Elise Wasserman and DCI Karl Roebuck reunite to investigate the case of a French couple abducted from the Eurotunnel. But the case is complicated when a plane carrying British and French passengers crashes into the Channel killing everyone on board. In a terrifying game of brinkmanship, Karl and Elise risk everything in the pursuit of true justice.
