IT is stating the obvious to say John Simm is outstanding in this fast-paced three-part crime drama.
He demands your attention from the minute we see him hanging upside down in the back of a police van after a crash.
But he is no ordinary criminal, as we find out.
He is a dedicated cop wrongly accused of murder and knows he is the best one to prove his innocence.
Watch out for Line of Duty’s Craig Parkinson in another pivotal role.
Prey is on ITV at 9pm.
