Sam Hunter is a spy who works for an elite private intelligence firm and during her latest mission escapes an attempted assassination. Realising someone has set her up and not knowing who to trust, Sam tries to find out who wants her dead.
This original, eight-part BBC spy drama is from the makers of Spooks and features Melissa George (Grey’s Anatomy) as Sam Hunter. She is supported by a cast of familiar faces including Adam Raynor (Mistresses) who plays Sam’s colleague and romantic interest, Stephen Dillane (Game Of Thrones), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost), Lex Shrapnel (Captain America: The First Avenger), and Morven Christie (Twenty Twelve).
In March this year, the Hunted crew came to Scotney Castle film various stunt and fight scenes in both the country house and oasts. Scotney Castle is a National Trust property which boasts a spectacular Victorian country mansion surrounded by beautiful gardens and woodland, as well as a fairytale inspired castle ruin complete with a moat set in the beautiful Tunbridge Wells countryside.
Many other well-known productions have also chosen Tunbridge Wells to serve as a backdrop including Queens of Mystery (2019).
Don’t miss the first episode of Hunted on 4th October 2012 at 21:00 on BBC One.
