'Tim Roth shines'
– The Times
Set among the spectacular, remote landscapes of the Rocky Mountains, Tin Star follows former British police officer Jim Worth, played by Tim Roth. When Jim is offered the job of Chief of Police in a sleepy town in the Canadian Rockies, he uproots his family in the hope of an idyllic new life – a decision he will come to regret for a very long time.
The sudden appearance of a big oil company brings new faces and the promise of big money to the small town – and throws it into a dark world of drugs, prostitution and violence.
'You'll be totally hooked'
It’s not long before tragedy strikes, and Jim's son Petey is murdered by a mysterious gang of masked killers in a botched assassination attempt on Jim himself. Consumed by guilt, he develops a self-destructive obsession with seeking revenge, and sets out on a dangerous mission to uncover who is responsible – and wants him dead.
All episodes of Tin Star series 2 will be available to watch on 24 January.
