The Devil’s Hour on UK Amazon Original – what’s it about?

The channel describes the series as a “mind-bending thriller”.

Terrifying visions wake Lucy at exactly 3.33am every night.

This time is known as the ‘Devil’s hour’ – the hour between 3am and 4am, or 3.33am specifically, is regarded as the time when unexplainable things can occur.

Lucy’s eight-year-old son acts withdrawn and emotionless.

Her mother speaks to empty chairs.

The echoes of a life that isn’t her own haunt Lucy’s house.

Police connect Lucy to a string of brutal murders in the area – and the answers that have evaded her all these years will finally come into focus.

Peter Capaldi plays a reclusive nomad, driven by a murderous obsession.

He becomes the prime target of a police manhunt led by compassionate detective Ravi Dhillon.

Who is in the cast of The Devil’s Hour?

Jessica Raine leads the cast in the new thriller.

She plays Lucy Chambers.

TV viewers will know her as Jenny Lee in Call the Midwife, a role she played from 2012 to 2014.

Jessica went on to play Jane Rochford in Wolf Hall, Jules Sutter in Fortitude, Annie Quaintain in Jericho and Julia in Patrick Melrose.

Other notable roles include her performance as Emily Waters in Informer and Genevieve in Baptiste.

Of course, Line of Duty fans will remember her role as the ill-fated Georgia who was pushed from a window to her death in her very first episode!

Peter Capaldi also tops the bill as Reclusive Nomad.

Peter is probably best known as The Doctor in Doctor Who from 2013 to 2017, and Malcolm Tucker in The Thick of It.

He’s also portrayed John Frobisher in Torchwood, Randall Brown in The Hour, and Cardinal Richelieu in The Musketeers.

The Split’s Meera Syal also stars in the series, as does Alex Ferns.

We know Alex has starred in a multitude of ace TV shows such as Chernobyl, The Widower and Wallander, but he’ll always be EastEnders’ menacing Trevor to us!

Ravi Dhillon is portrayed by Indian Summer’s Nikesh Patel, while Humans actor Phil Dunster has also been cast.
