Keeping Faith is a gripping Welsh noir drama that follows the harrowing story of Faith Howells, a Welsh lawyer and mother of three who is plunged into a maelstrom of deceit and danger when her husband and business partner, Evan Howells, goes missing. The series premiered in Welsh language on S4C in November 2017 and was later picked up by BBC One Wales in February 2018. It premiered globally on streaming service Acorn TV in August 2018, to a unanimous critical acclaim and commercial success.

Mali Harries stars as Faith Howells, a tenacious lawyer who finds herself struggling to balance her career, her family, and her own personal demons, after her husband Evan vanishes without a trace. As Faith begins to search for answers, she embarks on an emotional journey that takes her deep into the criminal underworld of her picturesque hometown of Abercorran.

The series, intricately written by Matthew Hall (Father Brown, Kavanagh QC), is a captivating mix of family drama, police procedural and psychological thriller with a generous dose of Welsh mythology and culture blended throughout. The show explores themes of love, loss, betrayal, loyalty, and the ties that bind us as a community.

Set against the stunning backdrop of west Wales, Keeping Faith is a feast for the eyes, with breathtaking landscape shots and atmospheric cinematography that captures the moody and ominous ambiance of the story. The music score by Amy Wadge and Laurence Love Greed adds an ethereal quality to the series, lending a dreamlike atmosphere that immerses the viewer in Faith's world.

The supporting cast is equally impressive, led by Mark Lewis Jones (The Crown) as Steve Baldini, the lead detective on the case, who becomes emotionally entangled with Faith as the investigation unfolds. Eve Myles (Broadchurch) delivers a stirring performance as Faith's sister-in-law, who harbors a dark secret of her own. Rhian Morgan (The Indian Doctor) plays Marion Howells, Faith's mother, whose fragile mental health takes a turn for the worse after her son's disappearance.

Over the course of three seasons and twenty-four episodes, Keeping Faith takes the viewer on a roller-coaster ride of emotions, as Faith battles to unravel the truth about her husband's disappearance while juggling the demands of her job, her children, and her own psyche. The series is a masterclass in character development, with each episode bringing us closer to understanding the complex web of relationships that surround Faith and her family.

What sets Keeping Faith apart from other crime dramas is its strong feminist perspective. The series is anchored by an intelligent, resourceful and fiercely independent female lead, who refuses to be defined by her role as a mother, wife or lawyer. Mali Harries portrays Faith with a raw vulnerability and a steely determination that is as inspiring as it is heartrending.

Overall, Keeping Faith is an engrossing and addictive series that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. With its excellent cast, clever writing, and stunning visuals, it is a must-watch for any fan of true crime dramas or female-driven dramas. It's no wonder that the show has amassed a loyal fan following and numerous awards, including the 2018 Best International Drama at the C21 International Drama Awards.
