Holding is ITV’s brand new murder mystery that is set in a quaint Irish village.
In the series, Game of Thrones star Conleth Hill plays Sergeant PJ Collins, a kindly man who enjoys comfort food and half-hearted police work.
However, his life is turned upside down when he is put in charge of investigating the murder of a long-lost local legend, forcing him to connect to the community that he usually tries to avoid.
This four-part drama is an adaptation of Graham Norton’s bestselling novel Holding, which was released back in 2016.
The show is directed by Kathy Burke, written by Dominic Treadwell-Collins and Karen Cogan, and produced by Happy Prince and Port Pictures.
The stellar line-up also includes Irish legend Brenda Fricker who played the famous bird woman in the Macaulay Culkin 1992 movie.
Holding airs Monday nights at 9pm on ITV and is also on the ITV Hub.
