This is the next don't-watch-before-bed Amazon Prime Video series. The Call the Midwife and Doctor Who actors will take on the leading roles in the six-part series from Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue, written by Tom Moran.

The spine-tingler is based on the story of single mum Lucy Chambers (Raine) who is woken up every night at 3.33am by scary visions and finds herself inexplicably linked to a string of hideous murders.

It also stars former EastEnders actor Alex Ferns, Coronation Street's Sandra Huggett, Nikesh Patel, Meera Syal and newcomer Benjamin Chivers.

Capaldi will star as a reclusive nomad and the chilling prime suspect of the manhunt led by detective Ravi Dhillon (Patel), which has yet to confirm a release date.

Georgia Brown, Director of European Amazon Originals for Prime Video, previously said: "The Devil's Hour is a gripping story from an exciting new voice, with a dream team behind and in front of the camera.

"We're thrilled to be working with Tom, Steven and Sue on this new project, and we can't wait to share news of the great British talent set to feature in this series."

Vertue added: "We are genuinely delighted to be one of the first UK Originals that Prime Video has commissioned. We are thrilled that Tom Moran and his big brain have trusted production company Hartswood Films, and Johnny Allan the director, with the wonderful task of bringing his scripts to life."
