Former Call the Midwife star Jessica Raine will lead Amazon Prime's mind-bending thriller The Devil's Hour.

The series follows the story of Raine's Lucy, who is woken every night by terrifying visions at exactly 3.33am: the devil's hour. Her eight-year-old son is withdrawn and emotionless. Her mother speaks to empty chairs.

Her house is haunted by the echoes of a life that isn't her own. When Lucy's name is inexplicably connected to a string of brutal murders in the area, the answers that have evaded her all these years will finally come into focus.

Peter Capaldi plays a reclusive nomad, driven by a murderous obsession. He becomes the prime target of a police manhunt led by compassionate detective Ravi Dhillon, played by Nikesh Patel.

Filming is officially underway. Here's everything else we know about the thriller so far...
