Played by Peter Firth.
Malcolm is a very successful local public figure, proud of his achievements and self-made millions. He met Gail when she was a young model and made her his trophy wife. However, since their marriage went sour, he’s become a much more private person.
Their marriage was initially happy but recently it has been marred by Malcolm’s ongoing, embarrassing feud with Hattie Sutton as she successfully campaigned to prevent him building on local ground.
Ever since, Malcolm has kept business affairs to himself but the disappearance of Hattie forces him to confront matters he desperately needs to keep secret.
