When a wealthy accountant is gunned down, DCI Tom Brannick (James Nesbitt) and his policing partner Niamh McGovern (Charlene McKenna) set to work untangling a murder conspiracy – one they soon realise is linked to missing gold, worth millions. Gold that Tom has seen before…
As Goliath, Tom intercepted a shipment of rifles intended for the IRA in 1998, and on receipt found eight bars of gold hidden alongside them. He kept the bounty for himself, using the threatening reputation of his alter ego to anonymously enlist a terrified Colin Foyle as his accountant, to keep it safe. When presented with Colin’s body, Tom realises he needs to find his gold before anyone – let alone his fellow officers – can get there first.
Season Two, Episode Six:
The police investigation and Tom’s illicit pursuit of Olivia, the murder weapon and the gold, threaten to collide as Tom must move the pieces into place so he can come out on top. Under immense pressure, Tom choreographs a final reckoning that will endanger those closest to him and force him to reveal the dark truth of who he really is.
