McCready and Daughter
Each week they uncover the deep secrets and passions that exist amongst families and friends and which drive people to desperate acts. Italian restaurants, dating agencies, pubs, libraries and small family businesses prove to be hotbeds of passion, rivalry, hatred and forbidden love.
Other people's family secrets bring to the fore McCready and Clare's own relationship. Divided by generation, united by blood, theirs is a funny, touching and modern bond between a father and a daughter.
In a drama very much about domestic dilemmas McCready and Clare have to negotiate their relationships with Donal (Brendan Coyle) and Laura (Kim Thompson) - brother/uncle and ex-wife/mother respectively.
In the first edition of the new series, entitled "Hobglobin" Clare (Patsy Palmer) goes undercover at a pub when Diane Ryder (Gillian Taylforth) asks McCready & Daughter to investigate the hit-and-run murder of her husband, Tony.
Diane claims that Tony appeared to her in a dream and told her that he was killed by someone he knew, so McCready (Lorcan Cranitch) sends Clare to work undercover at Hobgoblin, the pub that Tonv owned, so that she can observe his partners, Alan Tute (Andy Baker) and Harry Clough (Danny Webb), as well as his old friend and head barman, Leo Dowling (Bob Mason).
With some surprising help from Donal (Brendan Coyle), McCready discovers that the pub accounts are £50,000 down. Then Diane reveals a trail of fraud stretching as far as Spain, where Tony's last pub was mysteriously torched.
