Program Description

Clive Owen stars as Detective Chief Inspector Ross Tanner, an ambitious maverick who gets results by always going the extra mile. But Tanner is a man with a terrible secret-- he's going blind. He suffers from AZOOR, a virus that attacks the cornea and causes an intermittent loss of vision, as well as disturbing hallucinations. Claire Skinner co-stars as Detective Inspector Catherine Tully, a competitive graduate officer who is drafted into Tanner's Serious Crime Unit to help investigate the apparently motiveless brutal murder of a 19-year-old boy. The two form an uneasy alliance.
