Recap and relive episode one of compelling crime drama Deep Water.

6 Oct 2016 - 8:57 AM  UPDATED 6 Oct 2016 - 8:57 AM

When Detective Senior Constable Tori Lustigman (Yael Stone) relocates from the country to her childhood suburb of Bondi with her teenage son Will (Otis Pavlovic) – it is to put the past firmly behind her and start life over. Partnered with Detective Nick Manning (Noah Taylor), an outsider wary of newcomers, they are assigned to investigate the brutal murder of a young man whose mutilated corpse is found in an apartment. Was it a robbery gone wrong? A domestic? Or something far more sinister?

During their investigation they discover a series of eerily similar cold cases… one of whom may have been her brother, Shane. Much to the frustration of her boss Inspector Peel (William McInnes), Tori digs deeper only to have their current investigation compromised, resulting in a hostage situation and a fatal error of judgement.
