How many episodes are in The Tower on ITV?
The Tower is a highly-anticipated series starring a talented cast with the likes of Emmett Scanlan and Gemma Whelan.
Game of Thrones star Whelan plays senior detective Sarah Collins, with Scanlan playing officer Kieran Shaw.
The series opens with two people – a former officer and a teenage girl – falling to their deaths.
At the top of the tower block remains Lizzie and a five-year-old boy, but Lizzie soon disappears.
It is then down to Sarah and her team to piece together what happened and why Lizzie chose to run.
The series is made up of three hour-long episodes, which will all air in the same timeslot of 9pm.
The episodes will not be airing weekly, so fans will not have to worry about waiting for the next instalment.
Instead, the episodes will air on consecutive days, from Monday to Wednesday this week.
The finale will air on Wednesday, November 10 and all will be revealed in a satisfying ending.
All three episodes will be made available to watch on the ITV Hub if fans want to binge the series in one sitting.
The first episode will introduce Sarah and her colleague DC Steve Bradshaw (Jimmy Akingbola) as they are called to the scene at Portland Tower.
They find the dead bodies of PC Hadley Matthews (Nick Holder), and a 15-year-old Libyan refugee, Farah Mehenni (Lola Elsokari).
Lizzie is one of the only witnesses but she is unable to explain what happened.
Her colleagues fear her life is in danger as she ran away from the scene.
The second episode will begin with Lizzie still on the run, and Sarah has no choice but to appeal for information on her whereabouts.
In this episode, viewers will learn the connection between the refugee and officer Matthews.
Lizzie was caught up in the conflict between the two characters and Sarah ends up discovering more secrets about her colleague.
In the finale, Lizzie will finally come to her senses and she meets secretly with her boss Kieran.
In the meantime, Sarah discovers Kieran has a vital piece of information she needs to close the case.
The outcome of the case is decided in one pivotal interview between Sarah and Lizzie.
The truth will come as a shock for both Sarah and her colleague Steve.
The show’s writer, writer Patrick Harbinson, explained how the final interview between Lizzie and Sarah was his favourite scene.
He said: “Sarah is the straight arrow, the truth seeker; she will hold to the letter of the law, however hard that may be.
“Lizzie, however, is the pupil of Hadley Matthews. From her street-level perspective, the job has to get done, urgent problems have to be solved, sometimes the letter of the law has to be ignored, or even invented.
“That’s the heart of the relationship between them.”
The Tower airs on Monday on ITV at 9pm
