Sharman COMPLETE S01
Oscar-nominated Clive Owen (Chancer, Closer) brings a brooding intensity to the role of private detective Nick Sharman in this stylish drama based on the best-selling novels by Marc Timlin.

The series features rapidly paced storylines from, among others, Tony Hoare (The Sweeney, Minder) and the award-winning Paul Abbott (Shameless, Touching Evil); Samantha Janus, Keith Allen, Gina Bellman, Ray Winstone and Bill Paterson are among the guest stars.
