What is Intruder on C5 all about?

Intruder is a four-part thriller about a botched burglary.

After a dinner party, the chic home of the wealthy couple Sam and Rebecca is broken into.

One of the intruders escapes, but Sam turns the other one and stabs him.

Fearing arrest, the two try to recreate the stabbing scene together with their friend Angela.

They call the police, but present Sam’s actions as self-defense.

Police join in their claims until the family liaison officer, Bailey, becomes suspicious.

After speaking to the victim’s father, she is convinced that he was murdered in cold blood.

Will the power couple get away with it? Or will justice prevail?

Intruder will continue on Channel 5 at 9 p.m. on Tuesday (April 6), Wednesday (April 7), and Thursday (April 8) 2021.
