Viewpoint is the hit new ITV drama for 2021 starring Noel Clarke – here’s who’s on the cast.
Noel Clarke (Bulletproof, Star Trek Into Darkness) will lead an all star cast in the new five-part series which airs nightly at 9PM on ITV between Monday, 26 April and Friday, 30 April.
The drama is based on an idea by Fleabag and Emmy award-winning director, Harry Bradbeer (Killing Eve, No Offence) and has been co-created and written by Edgar award-winner Ed Whitmore (Safe House, Manhunt).
ITV say: “The gripping new drama follows a tense police surveillance investigation into a tight knit Manchester community and explores whether it is ever possible to observe the lives of others with true objectivity and zero effect. ”
Clarke plays surveillance detective, DC Martin King, who sets up his observation post in the home of single mum and secret voyeur, Zoe Sterling, played by Alexandra Roach (No Offence, Black Mirror).
Zoe’s windows command a panoramic view of Westbury Square, and more importantly provides a direct sightline into the home of missing primary school teacher, Gemma Hillman, played by Amy Wren (Tutankhamun, The Last Kingdom); the home she shares with boyfriend and prime suspect in her disappearance, Greg Sullivan, played by Fehinti Balogun (Informer, January 22nd).

Caitlin Sterling – KÍla Lord Cassidy

ITV tease of the series: “Mining the paranoid hinterland of Rear Window and The Lives Of Others, Viewpoint is a contemporary, character-driven mystery with a seductively intimate feel.
“But ultimately, it’s as much about friendship, trust and community as it is about solving a crime.
“Exploring the tension between our public and private lives and the secrets and horrors that thrive behind closed doors…especially when we think no-one’s watching. ”
Head of Drama at programme makers Tiger Aspect Productions and Executive Producer, Lucy Bedford said: “Harry and Ed have crafted a compelling, tense, claustrophobic thriller that turns the spotlight on the observer rather than the observed.
“With the incredible Noel Clarke and Alexandra Roach leading the cast, we are extremely excited to be back in production.”
Filming took place in Manchester in 2020.
