Daisy Haggard and Paterson Joseph lead the cast of the latest thriller series to air on the BBC in Boat Story.

The six-part series was created by brothers Harry and Jack Williams, who were also behind the BBC thriller The Tourist.

The story follows Janet (Haggard) and Samuel (Joseph) who steal a stash of cocaine from a boat that washes up at their seaside town.

"They hope to quickly sell on the supply for a huge sum of money, but quickly find it's not so easy to set foot in the murky world of organised crime and escape unscathed," The Radio Times adds.

The show is also described as having an unconventional narrative structure and "regular sprinklings of dark humour".

Alongside the two leads, the show features a stacked cast, including Joanna Scanlan, Craig Fairbrass and Phil Daniels.
