What is it about?
The five-part ITV drama follows a tense police surveillance investigation into a tight-knit Manchester community and delves deep into the moral ethics of voyeurism.
It tells the story of police officer DC Martin Young, who sets up his observation post in the home of single mum and secret peeping tom/voyeur, Zoe Sterling.
Zoe’s windows provide a direct view into the home of missing primary school teacher, Gemma Hillman.
It’s a home she shares with her boyfriend and prime suspect in her disappearance, Greg Sullivan.
The series is loosely based on a true story experienced by the neighbour of the show's creator, Harry Bradbeer, after she was approached by a plain clothes police officer.
The officer asked for permission to perform crime surveillance in Bradbeer's neighbours back room.
Bradbeer said: “Her husband was away on business – it was both rather tense and erotic having this strange man in her flat.
"It struck me as a great premise for a TV series. What if the police are investigating a murder and what if a relationship developed between the policeman and his host?"
He added: “He was there for a couple of weeks, peering through a chink in the curtains, but never revealing who he was looking at.
"She became intrigued and gradually worked out it was a case of drug dealing in the opposite house but it was odd having this man there.”
Viewpoint airs Monday, April 26, 2021, at 9pm on ITV.
