New Channel 5 Murder Mystery '15 Days' Has Viewers Hooked
Starring Catherine Tyldesley of Coronation Street fame, the 'Whodunit?' series sees a family return to the Welsh farmhouse where they grew up to say goodbye to their late mother. There's also the question of the will and what it holds for each other them following her death.
Catherine is one of those Welsh siblings, Sara, but the series will grip you as one member of the family is shot by an unseen assailant in a string of twists and turns.
Viewers are then left trying to work out who pulled the trigger through the rest of the series.
Channel 5's 15 Days wast touted as one of the dramas the broadcaster would produce with the money saved by axing Big Brother and its spin-off shows (Celebrity Big Brother and Big Brother's Bit On The Side).
Also starring are Geraint Morgan as Gareth, David Caves as Michael, Tom Rhys Harries as Rhys, Kezrena James as Joy and Ifan Huw Dafydd as Huw.
This is Catherine's first major TV role since her character Eva Price left the Coronation Street cobbles towards the end of last year.
