Doctor Who’s Jenna Coleman Leads BBC Crime Drama Series

BBC has released the trailer for its latest crime drama, The Jetty, starring Jenna Coleman as Detective Ember Manning. The series will premiere on July 15 on BBC iPlayer and BBC One.

“When a fire tears through a property in a scenic Lancashire lake town, Detective Ember Manning (Coleman) must work out how it connects to a podcast journalist investigating a missing persons cold case and an illicit relationship between a man in his twenties and two underage girls,” reads the official logline. “But as Ember gets close to the truth, it threatens to destroy her life – forcing her to re-evaluate everything she thought she knew about her past, present, and the town she’s always called home. As much a coming-of-age story as a detective thriller, The Jetty asks big questions about sexual morality, identity, and memory, in the places that Me Too has left behind.”
