Intruder start time: What is the Channel 5 drama about?

INTRUDER is a brand new drama coming to Channel 5.

The new thriller is billed as "a dangerous path of cover up, corruption and murder", and you can catch it TONIGHT (April 5).

What time is Intruder on tonight?

Intruder premieres on Channel 5 on Monday April 5.

It will air nightly in the same week at 9pm each night.

What is Intruder about?

The four-part series is a gripping thriller that follows married couple Rebecca (Elaine Cassidy) and Sam (Tom Meeten) in the wake of a break-in by two local teenagers.

As the teens try to escape through a window, Sam stabs one of them in a rage, and they enlist the help of their friend Angela to cover up his tracks.

Teenagers Tommy and Syed are soon held responsible for the break in and Family Liaison Officer Bailey heads the the ensuing investigation, which soon turns into a tale of cover-ups and murder.

Director and writer Gareth Tunley said: “We’re living in a world where, over the last few years, it seems everything we thought was solid has dissolved into air.

“So a story like this has an immediate and very current appeal: a couple who clearly think of themselves as ‘good’ people have their world completely flipped upside down and all their comfortable moral assumptions turned inside out.

“I think it’s a story of upheaval that, while it contains some of our worst fears, we can all relate to on some level.”

Executive Producer Mike Benson said: "Intruder is a tale about one awful decision by a married middle class couple, which leads them into increasingly dark deeds and compromises everything they purport to stand for – prepare for a turbulent ride ahead!”

Birds of a Feather actress Pauline Quirke stars as the officer, while Elaine Cassidy and Tom Meeten play crime victims Rebecca and Ben.

Where is Intruder filmed?

Filming for the drama took place in Ireland, in Dublin and in County Galway.

One of the show’s leads, Rebecca, is a journalist at the 'Becksfield Gazette', a small seaside town.

But her husband is a presenter for a station called London Chat Radio, so it can be assumed the action is split between the two locations.
