Series 1, Episode 1 - The Wrong Mans
Sam Pinkett and Phil Bourne, office workers for Berkshire County Council, have their menial existence turned upside-down by a chance phonecall and a case of mistaken identity.
After being sole witness to a car crash on a desolate country road, Sam answers an abandoned mobile telephone and hears a message that was clearly not meant for him: "If you are not here by 5 o'clock, we will kill your wife".
Encouraged by Phil, the office mailroom delivery boy, that they can be the heroes of the hour, the pair soon find themselves plunged into a deadly kidnap situation.
Sam and Phil soon find they're dodging bullets and escaping explosions in their quest to save not just themselves, but their loved ones and ultimately their whole town.
