*Warning, spoilers for The Bay.
ITV’s latest drama The Bay got off to a sensational start on Wednesday night, setting the wheels in motion for a scandalous whodunnit case.
By the end of episode one, Morvern Christie’s Detective Sergeant Lisa Armstrong had arrested Sean Meredith (Jonas Armstrong) for Dylan’s (Noah Valentine) death, but is he really the one who’s done the crime?
Speaking to Metro.co.uk at an exclusive press event, Daniel Ryan and Taheen Modak, who play DCI Tony Manning and DC Med Kharim revealed that all our hunches at this stage are probably wrong.
‘If you think you know who it is, you’re completely wrong,’ Daniel began, before revealing that he didn’t even know until after he’d finished reading the episode three script.
‘I was so far from the truth,’ added Taheen.
We had a lot of questions after watching episode one of the series, but there’s going to be even more people thrown into the mix as the case continues.
Talking about the situation at the end of opener, Daniel continued: ‘I don’t think we’ve met all the suspects.’
‘You meet more,’ teased Taheen.
‘We’ve still got Holly out there,’ added Daniel. ‘Pace wise, it’s not hurried, it’s not all action and it’s not all running about.
‘We’ve tried to keep it as real as we can, which isn’t always dramatic. The drama’s in the family, it’s their loss. It’s the police’s job to keep it all together.’
But it’s not just about whodunnit according to Daniel, who told us: ‘I think that because of the way the drama unfolds and because you get involved of the lives of the families, it becomes a kind of side order to what’s going on.’
‘You’re grieving and hoping at the same time. We become fascinated by the lives as well. It’s a lot richer than a whodunit. I think that’s what’s going to appeal.’
The Bay airs Wednesdays at 9pm on ITV.
