Created and written by Harry and Jack Williams (The Missing), the brand New 6-Part BBC crime drama Rellik is released on DVD 23rd October 2017 from Spirit Entertainment Limited.
What makes a serial killer? Or the cop who is compelled to relentlessly track him down? What are the events that form a person into the human being they will become killer or cop?
Rellik is a serial killer story told backwards. Tracing the obsessive hunt of a disfigured detective as his story becomes intrinsically bound to that of his quarry, asking the question what are the experiences that forge the people we all become?
The search for the killer provides a procedural backbone, but the damaged and disfigured Met detective, Gabriel Markham is at the centre of the piece. Enigmatic, unrelenting and charismatic, Gabriel is propelled into an obsessive hunt for a serial killer who left a mark on him both physically and mentally. As the series winds backwards, we delve further into the painful psychology of a man disfigured - we see how it split apart his marriage, his family, and his sense of self, while the shockwaves from the crime ripple out in reverse.
