In Plain Sight cast of ITV drama as it returns to TV

Meet the cast of In Plain Sight in full

In Plain Sight returns to ITV this week – here’s who’s on the cast of the drama.


Originally airing in 2016, In Plain Sight tells the true story of Lanarkshire detective William Muncie’s quest to bring serial killer Peter Manuel to justice.

Airing over three-episodes, the mini series follows Muncie’s determination to hunt down Manuel after a string of murders in the 1950s.

A synopsis for the first episode shares: “Peter Manuel, recently released from a nine-year prison term for a series of sexual assaults, is determined to make Detective William Muncie – the man responsible for his incarceration – pay the price.

“After a further sexual attack on a young woman named Mary McLauchlan, Manuel elects to defend himself in court and manages to secure a not-proven verdict. Muncie promises a distraught Mary that he will not rest until Manuel is behind bars.”
