Description & Features+

This taut series from creator Patrick Harbinson (24, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) revolves around master negotiator Dominic King. From the first phone call with kidnappers to risky excursions into exotic and dangerous locales, King places himself in the line of fire to bring the victims home. Played with steely restraint by veteran actor Trevor Eve (Waking the Dead), King has a brash negotiating style that lands him in hot water with publicity-minded police and politicians. His unconventional tactics also draw ire from the British Foreign Office, as well as his wife, Sophie (Natasha Little, Case Histories), and business partner, Angela (Helen Baxendale, An Unsuitable Job for a Woman). Filmed on location, Kidnap and Ransom examines the alarming rise of international kidnapping with gripping realism. This set includes Complete Series 1 and 2 of the acclaimed thriller, with guest stars including John Hannah (The Mummy), Patrick Baladi (The Office, U.K.), and Sharon Small (The Inspector Lynley Mysteries). Series 1 Episode 1 - A pair of street thugs nabs British scientist Naomi Shaffer in South Africa and issue an impossible demand: $2 million for her release. Hounded by a South African detective and his own self-doubt, Dominic quickly discovers that coming up with the cash is the least of his problems. Episode 2 - Joined by Inspector Lanning, Dominic unearths clues about the second kidnapping gang. Does the group’s urbane ringleader, Willard, want ransom or something more valuable? Dominic’s pursuit of the case threatens to estrange him from his wife, Sophie, and daughter, Tess. Episode 3 - Danger follows Naomi’s family back to England after her daughter, Sally, is kidnapped by Willard’s gang. As Dominic struggles to heal his broken family, the police bungle the case with shocking results. Working alone to save the girl, Dominic learns that Willard isn’t his only adversary. Series 2 Episode 1 - When two gun-wielding kidnappers storm a bus filled with tourists on a busy Kashmir street, Dominic must diffuse the hostage situation before police snipers unleash a surge of bloodshed. Can the master negotiator overcome meddling from the British foreign office and demands from trigger-happy hijackers? Episode 2 - Negotiations break down in a hail of gunfire after the hostage takers learn that one of the captives is the daughter of a powerful government figure. A chase through the city pushes the lives of two hostages to the edge, and Dominic makes a shocking discovery. Episode 3 - As Dominic unravels the unlikely past of one of the captors, he discovers that a third kidnapper is calling the shots from the shadows. The home office deals to release only one hostage, but Dominic has more ambitious plans: a final showdown that could free them all …or leave them dead.
