The Safe House

Christopher Eccleston to Star in ITV Drama ‘Safe House’

Doctor Who star Christopher Eccleston has been tapped to headline a new crime drama for ITV called Safe House.

The new four-part series is described as a tense thriller set in the beautiful wildnerness of the Lake District, and its story is inspired by the life of a real couple. Eccleston, who has most recently been seen on HBO drama The Leftovers, will be playing Robert, a retired detective thrust back into the criminal world when he and his wife Katy are asked to turn their remote bed and breakfast into a safe house for protected witnesses and crime victims.
