The Drowning is a gripping four-part thriller drama series which premiered on Channel 5 in February 2021. Starring Jill Halfpenny, Deborah Findlay and Dara Devaney, the show follows the story of a mother who is convinced that she has found her missing son. The story begins with Jodie Walsh (Jill Halfpenny) living a haunted life after her son, Tom, went missing and was presumed dead nine years ago. Even though his body was never found, everyone around her has given up hope of ever finding him again. However, Jodie still holds onto a faint hope that Tom is alive and continues her search for him.

One day, while on her way to work, Jodie catches a glimpse of a teenage boy who bears a striking resemblance to her missing son. Convinced that it's her long lost child, she sets out on a mission to track him down and bring him back home.

As her search begins, Jodie starts to uncover some shocking truths about the boy's family and their past. Her desperation to find out more about him leads her to forge a close relationship with the boy's mother, who is played by the brilliant Deborah Findlay.

Deborah's character, called Lisa, is initially suspicious of Jodie's motives but eventually starts to see her as a kindred spirit. The duo bond over their shared pain of losing a child, but it soon becomes clear that something darker is lurking beneath Lisa's seemingly perfect life.

As the story unfolds, more and more secrets are revealed, leading to some shocking revelations about Tom's disappearance. The plot is full of twists and turns, with the tension gradually building up as Jodie gets closer and closer to uncovering the truth.

Throughout the series, Jill Halfpenny delivers a powerful performance, perfectly capturing the raw emotions that a mother would feel after losing a child. Her portrayal of Jodie's pain is both heart-wrenching and intense, and she manages to keep the audience engrossed in her character's story.

Deborah Findlay also delivers an excellent performance, bringing a complex range of emotions to her role. Dara Devaney, who plays Lisa's husband, adds to the intrigue of the story with his brooding presence and ominous hints of a dark past.

The Drowning is a tightly plotted thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
