NETFLIX has released the first trailer for new thriller The Stranger, which was filmed across parts of Bolton, Bury and Manchester.

The show will be available to watch in full from Thursday, January 30, and stars former Spooks and The Hobbit actor Richard Armitage alongside Hannah John-Kamen as a mysterious stranger.

Armitage plays Adam Price, the series’ protagonist who finds himself tangled in a mysterious web of deception.

His steady life, two wonderful sons and watertight marriage all seem unassailable – until The Stranger reveals a shocking secret about his wife.

As events unfold, Siobhan Finneran’s punchy police detective, Johanna Griffin, finds her pragmatic approach to police work compromised when her investigation into the matter becomes deeply personal.

The series is based on the Harlan Coben novel of the same name.

It was filmed at the disused Moor Lane Bus Station in Bolton town centre throughout April of last year.

While other cameras were also spotted with crews filming beneath the Peel Memorial outside Bury Parish Church on The Rock.

The show also took production to Manchester locations, including Ancoats, St Peter’s Square and Whalley Range, as well as Eccles and Stockport.
