‘Honour’ trailer: ‘Durrells’ star Keeley Hawes plays real-life detective in new drama

ITV has released a trailer for its upcoming factual drama Honour.

The two-part mini-series stars Keeley Hawes, best known as Louisa in The Durrells.

Written by Gwyneth Hughes, Honour sees Hawes play the real-life detective who brought five killers to justice in the heartbreaking true story of Banaz Mahmod, a young Londoner murdered for falling in love with the wrong man.

Hughes previously adapted Vanity Fair for ITV in 2018.

Watch the trailer:


Honour begins in the UK on Monday 28th September at 9pm on ITV.

The official synopsis reads: “Honour tells the powerful story of Detective Chief Inspector Caroline Goode’s passionate search to discover the fate of missing 20-year old Banaz. DCI Goode discovered that Banaz had been to the police five times to report threats to her life from members of her own family.

“Appalled that her own colleagues had missed multiple chances to save a young woman’s life and prevent a so-called “honour” killing, Caroline vowed that she would not rest until she finally got justice for Banaz. It was a promise that quickly became personally consuming.

“This tense and emotionally vivid drama brings Caroline’s long and unwavering quest to life.”

Keeley Hawes will next be seen in Channel 4’s new 1980s drama Boys, followed by new ITV drama series Finding Alice, written by the creator of The Durrells.

All four seasons of The Durrells are currently available to watch on Amazon Prime and you can sign up for a free 30-day trial here!
