ABC1 airs Collision, an ITV drama that tells the story of a major road accident and a group of people who have never met, but who all share one single defining moment that will change their lives forever.
It will be the same edition which aired on PBS in only 2 episodes, edited from the original 5 hours down to three and a half hours (210 minutes).
It features Douglas Henshall, Kate Ashfield, Paul McGann, Jo Woodcock, Phil Davies, Dean Lennox Kelly, Craig Kelly, David Bamber, Zoe Telford and Lucy Griffith.
Amid the tangle of twisted metal and emotional turmoil wrought by the tragedy of a crash of this scale, are the stories of the victims, and the impact of the accident on their families, friends and colleagues.
As the terrible task of investigating the cause of the carnage begins, a series of revelations emerge, from government cover-ups and smuggling to disturbing corporate secrets and murder.
A police officer with a troubled past is brought in to investigate the shocking road traffic accident and begins to untangle the secrets and the lives of the complete strangers who are involved. As Detective Inspector John Tolin sifts through the case files, pictures of the collision and its victims, he starts to piece together the jigsaw puzzle of the events and twists of fate that led these people to be on the road at the same time. The chaotic aftermath of the collision brings more surprises.
Years of experience tell Tolin that there’s more to the collision than meets the eye. But as the mysteries pile up, he has to deal with his own complicated relationships and the tragic events in his life.
It begins 8:30pm Friday on ABC1.
