Here’s a thriller you won’t forget

John Hannah and Brendan Coyle


In the mood for a gritty, psychological thriller to start  your summer off right?

Look no further than Amnesia, which follows the crumbling life of Detective Sergeant “Mack” Stone, a black-out drunk, and his dangerous obsession with an unsolved mystery.

Stone is played by John Hannah, who starred as the grasping nobleman Batiatus in the brutal Starz miniseries Sparticus: Blood and Sand.

For all those longing for a familiar face from Masterpiece, Amnesia features “Downton Abbey’s” own mystery man, Mr. Bates, in the role of D.C. Ian Reid.

In Amnesia, while investigating the disappearance of his wife, Stone loses his grip on reality, hones in on amnesia patient John Dean and pursues him relentlessly. But as Stone’s behavior becomes more erratic, his claims seem less credible — leaving him to question his own memory.

A suspenseful story packed with intricate twists, this intelligent drama will keep you guessing until the very end, as the two flawed protagonists move towards their thrilling final confrontation.

Amnesia airs Sunday, June 1 at 9/8 pm on KET and Thursday, June 5 at 9/8 pm on KET2.

600 Cooper Drive, Lexington, KY 40502 (859) 258-7000 (800) 432-0951
