ITV has shared its first look image at new thriller Without Sin, starring Line of Duty's Vicky McClure.

In the four-part drama, which will air on streaming service ITVX, McClure plays Stella Tomlinson, a grieving mother who begins a relationship with her teenage daughter's murderer.

Stella's 14-year-old daughter is found dead at their family home with the bloodied, hooded figure of Charles Stone (Johnny Harris) standing over her.

Without Sin is set three years after the death of Stella's daughter and sees her struggling on a daily basis while wracked with guilt and remorse.

Choosing to live a nocturnal existence, Stella is working as an Uber driver and is estranged from her husband Paul, who still lives in the family home.

When contacted by Restorative Justice, Stella and Paul reunite to listen to a taped recording of Charles, who they believe wants to apologise for murdering their daughter. Stella then decides to return to where she grew up and reconnect with her mother Jessie and best friend Remy, before deciding to take things with Charles one step further.

She agrees to visit the prison alongside a Restorative Justice Mediator and comes face to face with Charles, but "nothing could prepare her for what he has to say next…"

Without Sin is produced by Left Bank Pictures and BYO Films and written by newcomer, Frances Poletti.

Speaking at the time of the drama's announcement, McClure said: "We are absolutely delighted that a hugely successful company such as Left Bank Pictures wanted to work with us, sharing the same beliefs with BYO's vision to create equality of opportunity.

"I am also thrilled to be working once again with my good friend, and one of the UK's finest actors, Johnny Harris, along with members of Nottingham's The Television Workshop. To be filming in my home town is a dream come true."

Line of Duty series 1-6 are available on BBC iPlayer, and DVD and Blu-ray boxsets are also available to buy now.
