John Simm who plays the role of Professor Jonah Mulray talked about his character. He said, “Jonah is a really intriguing character, and you are very curious to discover what happens to him next. These are the sort of scripts that I’m drawn to. What would this ordinary man do when put into this extraordinary situation?”
Here is the official synopsis of the show —
“British Professor Jonah Mulray’s life is turned upside-down after his wife, Megan Harris, is killed in a car crash in Hong Kong. Wracked with grief, Jonah has no choice but to cross the ocean to bring home the woman he loved. When Jonah arrives, he is immediately overwhelmed by the neon-saturated hyper-modern island of Hong Kong, a place in constant motion, and a world away from the halls of academia.
“It’s a city divided, with one foot still in its colonial past and another in its Chinese future. A world where we’re unsure if we can ever really know anyone at all – least of all Megan…
“When Jonah discovers that Megan led a secret life, it seems to destroy everything they built together in London. With Megan’s death leaving so many unanswered questions, Jonah struggles to make sense of it. Did their relationship amount to anything more than a lie?”
