Tamzin Outhwaite as Holly Faircroft
Joining the cast as Faircroft family matriarch Holly is Tamzin Outhwaite.
The Essex-born actress will be familiar to Emmerdale fans as she appeared in over 600 episodes of the soap as Mel Owen between 1998 and 2019.
Tamzin also has credits in New Tricks, The Fixer, Hotel Babylon, Dun Breedin’ and the recent BBC drama Ridley Road.
Faith Alabi as Desreta King
Faith Alabi was always destined to appear in a murder mystery and her turn as Desreta King is not, in fact, her first murder mystery rodeo.
Among Faith’s previous roles are appearances in the likes of Agatha Raisin, Vera and Grantchester while the actress has also appeared in Cold Feet, We Are Who We Are and Netflix’s Master of None.
Simon Lenagan as Bradley Faircroft

Lenagan made his acting debut back in 1997 and has since appeared in the likes of Sitting in Limbo, Breeders, The End of the F***ing World, and even had a background role in the 2015 Bond movie, Spectre.
Oscar Morgan as Jake Faircroft
And finally, we come to Oscar Morgan who takes on the role of Jake Faircroft.
With his actin debut coming in just 2017 and only a handful of roles to his name, Oscar is easily the least-experienced guest star in episode 2 but his previous roles include appearances in The Miniaturist, Millie Inbetween and BBC comedy Warren.
