Synopsis

Written by Hollywood scriptwriter Joe Penhall, Moses Jones is a three-part crime thriller set amongst London’s Ugandan community where nothing, and no one, is what they seem to be.

The story begins when a wave of violence hits a London community following the discovery of the bizarrely mutilated body of a man in the Thames.

First appearances suggest a witchcraft killing, but the dark reality is more complicated - and even more frightening.

Assigned to the case is young, hopeful Detective Sergeant Dan Twentyman (Matt Smith) and a disgruntled Detective Inspector Moses Jones (Shaun Parkes), who has been seconded from Scotland Yard due to his supposed cultural links with the local African community.

Confronted with a wall of silence from the cab drivers, restaurant staff and other itinerant and casual workers populating the area, Jones and Twentyman become increasingly frustrated, but all roads lead to Joy, her friend Solomon and the Afrigo Club, where the ex-pat community go to unwind to the irresistible music of Solomon’s band.

As the search deepens, the violence escalates and the investigation grinds to a halt. But one name crops up again and again - Matthias Mutukula, a mysterious godfather figure rumoured to have both terror links and supernatural powers.

Forced to ask himself tough questions about his cultural identity, Moses Jones embarks on a frightening quest to track down his man and redeem himself before the community implodes... or takes revenge itself.

The show also stars Eamonn Walker, Dennis Waterman, Indira Varma and Jude Akuwudike, and newcomers Wunmi Mosaku and Obi Abili.

Moses Jones is directed by Michael Offer. The producer is Cameron Roach and executive producers are Hilary Salmon and Joe Penhall.
