We fell hard for this twisty serial thriller starring the criminally underrated Romola Garai (you might remember her as the sharp-witted heroine of BBC drama The Hour). Garai plays Dr Helen Ash, who in Episode 1 witnesses a plane crash in which her estranged father, also a doctor, is thought to have perished. As it turns out, the dead passenger who was carrying her father's boarding pass was not her father at all, and the circumstances surrounding the crash are distinctly mysterious. When Helen tugs at these threads, a tapestry of body-horror conspiracy begins to come apart in her hands, with her father's experimental medical research at its centre. It's been a while since we had a binge-listening experience quite as satisfying at this one; we consumed the complete nine-part series over the course of two dizzying days.
