ITV have had a great start to the year when it comes to drama and that looks set to continue with their new 8-part series The Widow starring Kate Beckinsale, Charles Dance, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson and Louise Brealey.

The Widow tells the story of Georgia Wells (Kate Beckinsale) who has her life turned upside-down with a phone-call in the middle of the night. Her husband of over 10 years, Will, has been reported dead after a plane crash in the Congolese jungle.

Three years later, with her old life now a thing of the past, Georgia learns something shocking. Something that will take her to Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, looking to uncover the truth about his disappearance.
