What's the plot of The Devil's Hour?

The Devil's Hour follows the story of Lucy (Jessica Raine), who is woken at exactly 3.33am every night by terrifying visions.

Her eight-year-old son is withdrawn and emotionless. Her mother speaks to empty chairs. Her house is haunted by the echoes of a life that isn't her own.

When Lucy's name is inexplicably connected to a string of brutal murders in the area, the answers that have evaded her all these years will finally come into focus. 

The Prime Video description for the series reveals:

"When Lucy's name is inexplicably connected to a string of brutal murders in the area, the answers that have evaded her all these years will finally come into focus. Capaldi plays a reclusive nomad, driven by a murderous obsession. He becomes the prime target of a police manhunt led by compassionate detective Ravi Dhillon, played by Nikesh Patel."

Talking about the show at Prime Video Presents 2022, Raine said: "Lucy wakes up every night at 3.33am and has done for her whole life but she doesn’t know why. She has an eight-year-old son who is completely blank and is trying to get to the bottom of why her son is so emotionless.

"On top of this, there is a series of dark happenings going on around her and she might be the connection. She’s on the brink of insanity."

Peter Capaldi, who plays Gideon, said: "The nature of the piece is spectacularly dark and has been enjoyable to play. 

"He is a character that has fallen through the cracks and is responsible for some serious crimes. But he is not what he appears. He belongs to the night."
