NEW Richard Rankin Joins BBC’s Drama Thriller “Trust Me”

From BBC:

Set on the neurological unit of Glasgow Hospital, Alfred Enoch (Harry Potter, How to Get Away with Murder) will star as Corporal Jamie McCain, a survivor of a shock enemy attack. Recovering from a spinal injury which has left him temporarily paralysed, Jamie faces a new enemy as fellow patients on the ward die unexpectedly around him.

Alfred says: “It’s great to be on board, it’s a cracking cast and Dan has done a great job crafting something that’s really invested in the characters. It has a psychological concern that is dark and thrilling. I can’t wait to get started.”

More after the jump!

As Jamie obsessively searches for the truth, his investigation drags him and the clinical staff into their own unnerving nightmares. But with his behaviour becoming increasingly erratic, is the threat real or imagined and is Jamie a man we can trust?

Full of tension, twists and turns, the shocking new series also stars John Hannah (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Spartacus) as clinical lead, Archie Watson, a doctor, whose awkward persona hides a seedier and more sinister side. Ashley Jensen (Extras, Catastrophe) will play Debbie, a seemingly unimpeachable physiotherapist who is fiercely committed to her patients. However, there is a vulnerability to Debbie which makes her perfectly susceptible to being manipulated by a close colleague…

John says: “I’m very excited to be involved in unsettling and disturbing the nation by being part of Trust Me in this Hitchcockian tartan noir thriller.”

Richard Rankin (Outlander, The Crimson Field) will play neurologist, Dr Alex Kiernan who, on the surface, is a fun and dedicated doctor but hides his steely ambition and we sense an implicit undercurrent of threat beneath his professional exterior.

  1. I hope that one comes to Canada. Would love to see Richard Rankin in this new show. I get the feeling that we don’t get to see all the great show here in Canada.
