Find out what happens in this week’s episodes of Heroes and Sanctuary.
Sanctuary [Week 49] Episode Eight: ITV4, Monday 1st December. 9pm
Will (Robin Dunne) gets a call from Joe Cavanaugh (Kavan Smith), a former colleague in the police force, who grudgingly concedes that his suspicious suicide case desperately needs Will’s rare expertise in the unusual.
The case revolves around Edward (Michael Eisner), a teenage savant with a remarkable ability to draw photo-realistic images summoned from memory at amazing speed without even so much as a glance at the page. When Edward’s father is found dead in their home, the explanation is suicide. But when Will and Magnus (Amanda Tapping) investigate the scene, Will’s keen profiling insight tells him that there is much more to the story than is being revealed. He’s convinced Edward’s vivid and detailed drawings will somehow expose what really happened.
Edward’s mother Ruth (Gabrielle Rose) entrusts her son to the care of Magnus and Will in the Sanctuary. While the boy is there, Will attempts to reach Edward and understand what lies behind his drawings, most of which depict terrifying creatures and monsters. Will questions if Edward is really seeing what others cannot, or, if the monsters simply represent the teen’s fear of his allegedly abusive father.
