The Secret, released on DVD by Universal Pictures (UK) on 23rd May 2016 is all four parts of the gripping ITV miniseries based on true events of a Sunday school teacher and a respectable dentist who formed a murderous partnership.

The location: a seaside town in Northern Ireland in 1991. The scene: two bodies in a carbon monoxide filled car. A former nurse Lesley Howell, and a police officer Trevor Buchanan, have apparently taken their own lives together...

Hazel Buchanan (Genevieve O'Reilly) and Colin Howell (James Nesbitt) meet at their local Baptist Church in Coleraine, Northern Ireland and embark upon a passionate and destructive affair, which climaxes in an elaborate plot to commit the "perfect murder" to kill both their partners, Lesley and Trevor, and make it look like a suicide pact.

The killers fool the police and get away with murder, but their relationship soon sours and they separate. They rebuild their lives, each remarrying and prospering, but can never escape what they have done. As a series of disasters befalls Howell, he finally confesses his crimes to the horrified elders of his church.

Convicted of murder, Howell implicates Hazel in the killing. Hazel admits involvement but pleads not guilty, claiming she was coerced. In a climactic murder trial, Howell gives evidence against his former lover.
