Ex-cons Ellie, Hannah, Shoo, and Josie have done their time. Now they just want to disappear to Barbados with £3 million stolen from Ellie's gangster husband, Roy. When a twist of fate leaves them without passports, they flee to a remote village in the Scottish Highlands and a shabby hotel that seems like the perfect hideaway. All they have to do is lie low and plan their escape. But the town of Hope Springs harbors bigger secrets and worse crimes, including unsolved murders. Soon their lives are complicated by small-town nosiness, a shady solicitor, a handsome policeman, and a hit man sent by Roy in search of his money--and the girls. Alex Kingston (ER, Moll Flanders) leads a colorful cast that includes Annette Crosbie (Little Dorrit), Sian Reeves (Emmerdale Farm), Paul Higgins (In the Loop), Christine Bottomley (The Street), Vinette Robinson (Waterloo Road), Ronni Ancona (Gideon's Daughter), and Alec Newman (Frank Herbert's Dune). Set against the backdrop of gorgeous Scottish scenery, Hope Springs is escapist, entertaining fun.
Police detective Harry Ryan uncovers greed and corruption as he struggles with the guilt that he arrested the wrong man. His boss and partner, whom he both trusted, now threaten his career and family if he does not stop his personal investigation that threatens to uncover government corruption. How high will Ryan pay for justice?
