Anchor Bay Entertainment Presents The Thrilling and Chilling British Crime Drama "Thorne" on 2-Disc DVD Set March 5th

On March 5th, Anchor Bay Entertainment will release the gritty and uncompromising British crime drama “Thorne” on DVD. Centering on the complex and unpredictable Detective Inspector Tom Thorne (David Morrissey, now starring as The Governor on “The Walking Dead”), these two episodes originally aired on ENCORE as part of their Big Mini-series Showcase. Adapted from two favorites in Mark Billingham’s bestselling series of novels, we follow Det. Thorne on an intense chase through chilling crime scenes, deliberately manipulated clues and the darkest depths of London.

Along with Morrissey, the cast features Natasha McElhone (“Californication”), Sandra Oh (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes), Aidan Gillen (“The Wire”), and Joshua Close. The SRP for the two-disc DVD set is $29.98. The pre-book date is February 6th.

In the first story, “Sleepyhead,” the detective is dragged back into the nightmares of his past when young girls begin falling victim to sadistically induced strokes. Thorne knows there are more deaths to come, as the skillful predator enjoys toying with Thorne just as much as pursuing his sick fantasy.

In the second, “Scaredy Cat,” two female victims turn out to be killed in the exact same way and Thorne finds himself on the hunt for not one, but two serial killers. Are they working together, yet killing separately? The answer will unravel a case that reaches back ten dark years.

Prepare to be thrilled and chilled in equal measure, because in “Thorne”, nothing is done by the book.
