Gemma Whelan, a British comedienne, dancer and shapeshifter you’ll remember from Game of Thrones takes on a new identity as dour and capable London police Detective Sargeant Sarah Collins in BritBox’ new series The Tower. She’s investigating the mysterious deaths of a policeman and a young refugee who fell from a highrise roof together, a case with far-reaching implications. The deeper Collins digs, the more apparent becomes a web of police corruption, and she becomes the target of sexism and disdain within the ranks of law enforcement. This systemic corruption only steels her to get to the bottom of the mystery. What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with Whelan from her home in London and found she’s anything but dour!
