Watch The Tower on BritBox – Storyline
A veteran beat cop and teenage girl fall to their deaths from a tower block in south-east London, leaving a five-year-old boy and rookie police officer, Lizzie Griffiths, on the roof, only for them to go missing.
Detective Sergeant Sarah Collins is drafted in to investigate, working to find Lizzie before she comes to serious harm, but also to uncover the truth behind the grisly tower block deaths.
The detectives, DS Sarah Collins (Gemma Whelan) and DC Steve Bradshaw (Jimmy Akingbola) are part of the Metropolitan Police’s Division of Special Investigations (DSI), called to the scene because a police officer was involved.
At the scene, veteran beat cop PC Hadley Matthews (Nick Holder) and 15-year-old Farrah Mehenni (Lola Elsokari) are still where they were found, their bodies lying in pools of blood.
On the roof, Collins finds rookie PC Lizzie Adama (Tahirah Sharif) and 5-year-old Ben Stoddard (Rex Parry).
Adama was Matthews’ partner and she saw the entire incident unfold; she’s in shock, and her boss, DI Kieran Shaw (Emmett J Scanlan), wants to keep the DSI folks away from her.
So, against procedure, he sends her home before Bradshaw can question her.
Soon after, Adama takes off and leaves few clues as to where she’s gone.
