Trust Me returns to BBC One soon, with a switch around in casts. Despite the lack of Jodie Whittaker, though, the drama promises to add mystery and paranoia for its second season, and the trailer teases plenty of both.

Set on the neurological unit of Glasgow Hospital, Alfred Enoch (Harry Potter, How to Get Away with Murder) will star as Corporal Jamie McCain, a survivor of a shock enemy attack. Recovering from a spinal injury which has left him temporarily paralysed, Jamie faces a new enemy as fellow patients on the ward die unexpectedly around him.

With a killer on the loose, his investigation drags him and the clinical staff into their own unnerving nightmares. But with his behaviour becoming increasingly erratic, is the threat real or imagined and is Jamie a man we can trust? Season 2 also stars John Hannah (Four Weddings and a Funeral) as clinical lead Archie Watson and Ashley Jensen (Extras, Catastrophe) as Debbie, an unimpeachable physiotherapist. Richard Rankin (Outlander, The Crimson Field) joins them as neurologist Dr Alex Kiernan, who, on the surface, is a fun and dedicated doctor but hides his steely ambition beneath his professional exterior.

See them in action in the video below:

Alfred Enoch, Ashley Jenson and John Hannah to star in Trust Me Season 2

18th September 2018

Trust Me will return to BBC One for a second season, but without Jodie Whittaker. The show, which began with the tale of Whittaker’s character pretending to be something she wasn’t in a hospital, achieved a consolidated series average of 6 million viewers. It will switch focus to a new story for its sophomore run, which will combine military and medical paranoia.

Set on the neurological unit of Glasgow Hospital, Alfred Enoch (Harry Potter, How to Get Away with Murder) will star as Corporal Jamie McCain, a survivor of a shock enemy attack. Recovering from a spinal injury which has left him temporarily paralysed, Jamie faces a new enemy as fellow patients on the ward die unexpectedly around him.

Alfred says: “It’s great to be on board, it’s a cracking cast and Dan has done a great job crafting something that’s really invested in the characters. It has a psychological concern that is dark and thrilling. I can’t wait to get started.”

As Jamie obsessively searches for the truth, his investigation drags him and the clinical staff into their own unnerving nightmares. But with his behaviour becoming increasingly erratic, is the threat real or imagined and is Jamie a man we can trust?

Full of tension, twists and turns, it also stars John Hannah (Four Weddings and a Funeral) as clinical lead Archie Watson, a doctor whose awkward persona hides a seedier and more sinister side. Ashley Jensen (Extras, Catastrophe) will play Debbie, a seemingly unimpeachable physiotherapist who is fiercely committed to her patients.

John says: “I’m very excited to be involved in unsettling and disturbing the nation by being part of Trust Me in this Hitchcockian tartan noir.”

Richard Rankin (Outlander, The Crimson Field) will play neurologist, Dr Alex Kiernan who, on the surface, is a fun and dedicated doctor but hides his steely ambition and beneath his professional exterior.

Richard says: “As part of a richly drawn and intriguing ensemble of new characters, it’s going to be a lot of fun bringing Alex to life.”

Also joining this all-star line-up are Katie Clarkson Hill, Jamie Michie, Chloe Harris, Amiera Darwish and Saskia Ashdown.

Trust Me is a RED Production Company production for BBC One. It is created, written and executive produced by Dan Sefton with Nicola Shindler as Executive Producer for RED Production Company and Gaynor Holmes as Executive Producer for BBC One. Series producer is Suzanne Reid and the drama will be directed by John Alexander (Jamestown, Sense & Sensibility).

Writer and executive producer Dan Sefton says: “I’m over the moon to be working with such fantastic actors on the new series of Trust Me. It’s great to write a series that stars established talent like John and Ashley, while also bringing young actors like Alfred and Katie to leading roles for the BBC.”

Nicola Shindler, founder and executive producer, RED Production Company, says: “I’m thrilled to be working with Dan again and with this story he’s invented a whole new world for a medical thriller that gets darker and scarier as the series progresses.”

The four-part season will air on BBC One in 2019.
