Dead Still Series 1






A brand-new Acorn TV Original is ready for its close up; DEAD STILL, a morbidly comic period drama, like never before seen, gets its UK premiere on Acorn TV this summer.

Offering a contemporary take on the genre, we're transported to Victorian Dublin, in the heyday of the macabre practice of post-mortem photography, taking portrait photos of the recently deceased. This six-part series follows a renowned memorial photographer, played by accomplished actor Michael Smiley (Luther, Wire in the Blood), who is drawn into an investigation of a series of suspicious deaths.

After an unfortunate accident and waning patronage take their toll, Brock Blennerhasset (Smiley) must take on his would-be actress niece, Nancy Vickers (O'Higgins), and a new, eager assistant and former grave-digger, Conall Molloy (Logan) to help keep his macabre memorial photography business afloat. Meanwhile, Detective Frederick Regan (O'Hare) of the Dublin Metropolitan Police is following a trail of bodies, closing in on a murderer who appears to be cashing in on the sordid market for 'snuff' imagery. Unfortunately, the bodies seem to lead to Blennerhasset's door... so with his trusty assistants at hand, they take it upon themselves to track down the true perpetrator before he strikes again.
