What is The Sister on ITV about?

The Sister is based on Cross’ 2009 novel, Burial.

Across four episodes, viewers will follow Nathan (played by Russell Tovey) as he tries to evade the ghosts of his past.

Nathan holds close a dark secret, relating to the disappearance of his sister-in-law Elsie (Simone Ashey).

More than a decade after Elsie’s disappearance, Nathan is visited by an old friend Bob, who brings Nathan’s dark secrets to the surface.

Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk and other press, Cross revealed the story was based on a terrifying nightmare he had, where he believed he stabbed a homeless man to death.

He said: “Even now there is 1% of me that is troubled by the memory of it.

“When the internet was invented one of the first things I did when I became aware of what search engines were, I searched the old newspapers.

“So that was the inspiration. But I didn’t do it if anyone is wondering.”

The synopsis for the series reads: “The synopsis for the series reads: “Nathan tries to do the right thing but he lacks direction and is carrying a long-buried secret that he is desperate to keep hidden.

“Having started a new life as a devoted married man, Nathan’s world is turned upside down when a ghost from his past, Bob (Bertie Carvel, Doctor Foster), turns up on his doorstep.

“Bob reveals some shocking news which has disastrous consequences and leads to a journey of psychological suspense, love and potential redemption.”
