Set against the gritty backdrop of Manchester's south central, 'The Ninth Man' is an intense three-part crime drama series that delves deep into a world of mystery and conspiracies. A sadistic serial killer is on the loose, preying on women and leaving their lifeless bodies in the serene River Mersey.
A team of detectives, each dealing with their personal demons, are thrust onto the case, desperately seeking answers and justice. But as they delve deeper, they stumble into a tangled web of international conspiracy and politics far beyond their jurisdiction. They soon realize that they're not just hunting a killer, but are also caught in a game they're ill-prepared for.
