Hidden is a British television drama starring Philip Glenister, Thekla Reuten, Anna Chancellor, Michael Winder, Andrew Scarborough and David Suchet, which debuted on BBC One on 6 October 2011.[1] The four-part series was directed by Niall MacCormick, produced by Christopher Hall and written by Ronan Bennett. The series focuses on small-time solicitor Harry Venn (Glenister), who is reluctantly drawn back into his dark past after being approached by Gina Hawkes (Reuten). Hawkes, a lawyer searching for a missing alibi witness for her client, quickly draws Venn into a deep and dangerous conspiracy involving the death of his brother twenty years previously, and which reaches deep into the heart of the British political system.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

Josephine Moulds of The Telegraph said of the first series: "All in all it was terribly exciting. Less pretentious than Page Eight and more ambitious than Spooks, Hidden nailed the intelligent, pacy TV thriller."[1]
