A new investigation sees DCI Amy Silva (played by Suranne Jones) hunting down a killer amid drone warfare surroundings.

A Scottish military facility has suffered multiple unexplained fatalities following a weapons test. It’s down to DCI Silva, along with DI Kirsten Longacre (played by Rose Leslie) to find out why.

DCI Silva and DI Longacre encounter hostility as they attempt to look into the Air Force, whose members close ranks.

But the officers will also have to fight for their own future as they face deadly tech designed for wars of the future.

However, familiar faces such as Dougray Scott, Romola Garai, David Elliot, Amir El-Masry, and Chris Jenks will be making a return.
