Based on Holly Jackson’s smash hit novels, new BBC drama A Good Girl's Guide to Murder - launching first on iPlayer then later in the month on BBC Three - stars Emma Myers as teenager Pip Fitz-Amobi who during the summer holidays, is focused on an unusual school research project.


In Little Kilton five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell went missing. Her boyfriend Sal Singh sent a text confessing to the murder before being found dead, seemingly taking his own life. Andie’s body was never found. Case closed. However, Pip isn’t so sure and is determined to prove Sal’s innocence.


The six-part drama was filmed in and around Somerset, England and also stars Anna Maxwell Martin, Gary Beadle, Mathew Baynton and newcomer Zain Iqbal.
