About Sandylands

Twenty seven-year-old Emily Verma (Natalie Dew) swore she'd never return to her neon-encrusted childhood home - the seaside town of Sandylands, but when a pedalo is washed ashore - a pedalo last hired by her estranged father and the self-proclaimed 'King of the Strip', Les Vegas (Sanjeev Bhaskar) - Emily is summoned back to attend his memorial after Les is pronounced 'lost at sea'.

She's met by a cast of colourful locals including larger-than-life tour guide Tina Taylor (Harriet Webb); oddball B&B owners and next door neighbours Derek (David Walliams) and Jeannie Swallows (Sophie Thompson); infamous (for all the wrong reasons) nightclub owner Terry Chino (Craig Parkinson); and Emily's former childhood crush, Nathan Wild (Simon Bird).

But unknown to Emily, there's someone else who's very keen to get to know her better... she soon discovers that both she and her family home are under the scrutiny of a mysterious One-Eyed Man (Hugh Bonneville), a sinister insurance investigator with only one thing on his mind: getting to the bottom of Les's suspicious disappearance.
