Nick Berry and Stephen Tompkinson return as undercover detectives in a new series of In Deep for BBC ONE

Press pack available

Nick Berry and Stephen Tompkinson are jumping back in at the deep end in a new series of In Deep for BBC ONE in February.

"Nick and Stephen work brilliantly together as undercover detectives Liam Ketman and Garth O'Hanlon.

"In Deep has been a big hit with viewers and I'm delighted that the series is returning for its third outing in 2003," says Mal Young, Controller of Continuing Drama Series.

John Yorke, Executive Producer, adds: "Series three is action-packed with Garth and Liam confronting armed robbers, a bombing campaign and a corrupt government minister."

Liam's (Nick Berry) life has been turned upside-down since his wife's terrible murder at the end of the second series. Once the stable one in the partnership, Liam has turned into a time bomb, with only Garth's constant vigilance to stop him stepping over the edge.

Garth (Stephen Tompkinson), meanwhile, continues to lead a shadowy double life, giving few personal details away and ruthlessly pursuing the job in hand. As both he and Liam plunge deeper undercover, taking more and more risks to get results, Garth is finally forced to question his values, his operating methods and what he holds most dear.

Fiona Allen returns as Sophie, the police psychologist. Whilst trying to keep the guys on the straight and narrow, she finds herself being dragged further and further into their undercover lives.

As Level III detectives, Liam and Garth spend their lives behind enemy lines, living a lie to their friends, their partners and sometimes to themselves.

But with only each other to trust and Liam reeling from the death of his wife, the stakes are higher than ever before.
