The Bay is a brand new drama on ITV – here’s who’s on the cast and all you need to know.
The Bay sees Detective Sergeant Lisa Armstrong assigned to a missing persons investigation. At first it seems like any other – tragic, but all too familiar.
As a Family Liaison Officer, she’s trained never to get emotionally involved. Her job is to support families during the worst time of their lives whilst also to be the eyes and ears of the police investigation; a cuckoo in the nest.
But there’s something very different about this particular case. With horror Lisa realises she’s got a personal connection with this frightened family; one that could compromise her and the investigation.
