Alibi announce new Amelia Bullmore drama

Traces, written by Bullmore, who starred in and wrote Scott & Bailey, is the channel's first ever commission and UKTV's latest original drama.

The six-part series will be produced by RED Production Company who have recently brought audiences Happy Valley, Butterfly and Trust Me and is based on an original idea by best-selling crime writer Val McDermid.

Described as "a suspense-filled crime thriller told from a fresh point of view, where forensic science takes centre stage", the Scotland-set series explores the world of SIFA, the Scottish Institute of Forensic Science.
