Jessica Raine and Peter Capaldi to Star in Amazon's Upcoming Drama 'The Devil's Hour'

Amazon has today confirmed the start of production and the cast for the upcoming original British drama series The Devil's Hour. The first season will feature six episodes.

Lucy Chambers (Jessica Raine, Informer) wakes up every night at exactly 3:33AM, in the middle of the so-called devil's hour between 3AM and 4AM. Her 8-year-old son is withdrawn and emotionless. Her mother speaks to empty chairs. Her house is haunted by the echoes of a life that isn't her own. Now, when her name is inexplicably connected to a string of brutal murders in the area, the answers that have evaded her all these years will finally come into focus.

Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who) stars as a reclusive nomad driven by a murderous obsession. He becomes the prime target of a police manhunt led by compassionate detective Ravi Dhillon (Nikesh Patel, Starstruck). 

Additional cast includes Meera Syal, Alex Ferns, Phil Dunster, Barbara Marten, Thomas Dominique, Rhiannon Harper-Rafferty, John Alastair, Sandra Huggett and Benjamin Chivers.

Tom Moran is writing the series, with Johnny Allan set to direct. They will executive produce with Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue. Hartswood Films will produce.
