The entire first and second series of this BBC drama.
In series 1 Danny (John Simm) is a young Liverpudlian with a taste for gambling and women who escapes life on the dole in Liverpool to become a kitchen porter in a Lake District hotel.
The sleepy town seems to be one long string of affairs and Danny is soon caught up in the lust himself.
When a tragedy shakes the whole community a scapegoat is needed and Danny finds himself in the firing line.
Whilst in Series 2 the rural community has been hit hard by the deaths of three small children.
Danny struggles to provide for his wife Emma (Emma Cunliffe) and their small baby, and becomes involved in the defence of Lucy (Kaye Wragg) at work after she is sexually assaulted.
Meanwhile, Chef (Charlie Dale), recovering from the hit and run, uses his promiscuity to divine the identity of whoever ran him down, while Father Matthew (Bob Pugh) and Bernie (Mary Jo Randle) agonise over their affair.
