Dark Money spoilers

Dark Mon£y tells the fictional story of The Mensahs, an ordinary working-class family from North London whose youngest son has recently finished filming a major Hollywood movie role.

But Manny and Sam’s world is shattered when Isaac reveals he was abused whilst out in America by a renowned filmmaker.

Although guilt-ridden, the family decide to accept a substantial pay-off to keep silent, believing the money will help start a new life, enable them to heal, and avoid the publicity hell of pressing charges against a celebrity.

But the damage runs deep, and the cost of remaining silent may be too high.

In tonight's third episode, with Isaac facing rejection on the next film, he spirals out of control and the family starts to fracture. As the truth starts to come out, Jess plays a dangerous game with the press.

In tomorrow's fourth and final episode, Manny and Sam are threatened by Jotham’s lawyer. Both decide to seek justice for their son, but in very different ways.

The four-part series concludes on BBC One this week on Monday and Tuesday at 9PM.
