2 days ago

Channel 4’s latest thriller series, The Gathering, aired last night, and is already captivating audiences with its gripping storyline.

Set and filmed in Liverpool, The Gathering is already attracting rave reviews, and is another example of how our city is becoming a blockbuster itself within the Film and TV industry.

What’s it about?

The Gathering is ultimately a whodunnit – or, in this case – a-why-done it, after Kelly is attacked at an illicit rave.

Centred around a group of diverse teenagers and their families, each character harbours their own reasons for potentially harming Kelly, a talented gymnast on the National Team pathway.

With each episode, the story shifts to spotlight a different character, offering viewers a glimpse into their unique perspective and circumstances. As the story unfolds, you are invited to piece together clues and find out the identity of the perpetrator.

Penned by acclaimed novelist Helen Walsh in her television screenwriting debut, The Gathering introduces viewers to a diverse cast of characters, each with their own motives and secrets.
