Watch Safe House
- 2 Seasons
Safe House is a gripping British crime thriller starring Christopher Eccleston as a retired police officer turned guesthouse owner named Robert who is unexpectedly drawn back into the world of law enforcement one stormy night when strangers arrive at his door seeking refuge. As it turns out, these strangers are the police, who are escorting a very dangerous individual, a former businessman named David and his family, to Robert's guesthouse for their own protection.
The reason for David's protection quickly becomes clear - he has just given evidence against his former employers in a major corruption case, and they are out for revenge. As the storm rages outside, tensions run high inside the guesthouse, as the police try to keep David and his family safe from the unknown threat that is closing in on them.
But when the worst happens and the house is attacked, Robert finds himself in the middle of a dangerous and complex investigation, forced to confront his own past and form unlikely alliances with both the police and the criminals in order to keep David alive and bring his attackers to justice.
Over the course of the series, Robert and the police gradually uncover a web of deceit and corruption that reaches far beyond David's case, as they delve into the murky world of high finance and organized crime. But as the danger increases, Robert finds that his own life is in danger, as shadowy figures from his past come back to haunt him.
The series also features a powerful and nuanced performance from Marsha Thomason as the lead detective on the case, who must navigate the complicated relationships between Robert, his estranged wife, and their teenage daughter who becomes increasingly drawn into the danger surrounding the guesthouse.
Spanning two seasons, Safe House is a tense and beautifully crafted drama with strong performances, tight plotting, and stunning cinematography that captures both the rugged beauty of the North Welsh coast where the guesthouse is located, and the claustrophobic atmosphere of the guesthouse itself as tensions escalate and secrets are revealed.
With its complex characters, unpredictable plot twists, and strong sense of place, Safe House is a must-watch for fans of British crime dramas, and anyone who enjoys a thrilling, edge-of-your-seat story that keeps you guessing until the very end.
