One Of Us, written by Harry and Jack Williams, is described as a tense thriller following the twists and aftermath of the brutal murder of two childhood sweethearts just back from honeymoon.

Filming took place over three months in Edinburgh, with other scenes shot in the Borders and the Highlands.

William McGregor, director of BBC One drama One Of Us, said: “A huge amount of the tone and atmosphere of One of Us came from the architecture, surrounding landscape and beautiful light quality of Edinburgh.

The first episode of One of Us will be screened on BBC One tonight at 9pm.
