Lachlan (played by Thomas Atkinson) let his darker impulses take over last year, when he used a car crash to murder his mother, Chrissie, and grandfather Lawrence.

And now he’s desperate to keep the truth hidden – and anyone who knows what happened is in danger.

After leaving a confession on a voicemail to his friend Gerry Roberts (Shaun Thomas), Lachlan put himself in danger, and is working to undo it.

His first – and less violent – attempt appeared to have worked.

He deleted the voicemail from Gerry’s phone, which seemed to be the only piece of evidence he needed to cover up.

But now it looks like Gerry might have heard the confession after all.

The new trailer shows Gerry confronting Lachlan, saying “Your voicemail. I found it.”
