Red Eye | Preview (ITV1)

The story of a collision of three worlds as DC Hana Li, journalist Jess Li, and MI5’s Madeline Delaney are thrown into the same life-threatening conspiracy involving a British doctor’s arrest.

Jing Lusi, Jemma Moore, Lesley Sharp and Richard Armitage star in this drama about Dr Matthew Nolan, who arrives home and is immediately arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport after attending a medical conference in Beijing.

Dr Matthew Nolan comes frighteningly close to dying in a car crash - a dead woman was discovered in his crashed car, and despite his protests that he was driving alone, Nolan must return to China to face charges.

DC Hana Li is the no-nonsense London officer charged with accompanying Nolan back to Beijing - born in Hong Kong and with a traumatic past, she does not want to go. Once ordered, her resentment for this assignment and of Nolan himself is intense - however, when a first death occurs onboard, Hana begins to suspect foul play and commences an investigation.

Further deaths confirm that Nolan truly is in danger, and after a call from MI5, Hana finds herself embroiled in an escalating conspiracy.

Back in London, we follow Hana’s half-sister Jess Li, a scrappy journalist with whom Hana has a fractious relationship - trying to cash in on Hana’s assignment, Jess runs her own investigation into Nolan’s extradition and finds herself on the run from a lethal and unknown assassin.

In Thames House, head of MI5 Madeline Delaney breaks protocol and risks her entire career to not only help Hana and Nolan stay alive, but to expose an international conspiracy that seems to implicate both China and people in her own government for the murders on Flight 357.

Red Eye begins Sunday 21st April at 9pm on ITV1.
