James Nesbitt stars in The Missing. (BBC/Starz)

The BBC drama The Missing had millions of viewers on the edge of their seats, asking, “What happened to young Olly?”

There won’t be any spoilers here, but we can say one of our Anglo writers (okay, it was me) found the show so addictive that she signed up for the premium cable channel Starz to see the series through to the end.

Brothers Jack and Harry Williams, who wrote the successful thriller starring James Nesbitt, are at it again with a new series entitled Rellikreports RadioTimes.

You may notice the show’s name doesn’t follow the traditional spelling of “relic.”

Hmm, what if we reverse the order of the letters and spell it backwards? Yep, it spells, “Killer.”

The unique spelling mirrors what the writing duo does with their script: The first episode introduces the killer, and the six-part series then works backward revealing the events that led up to the crime.

While the series is in the very early stages, BBC’s Ben Stephenson, controller of drama commissioning, revealed to RadioTimes, “What you think it is is not what it is. You found out who the killer is at the beginning of the episode, but it’s not what you think it is.”

Stephenson may be trying to provide a hint, but with that roundabout description we’re no closer to knowing what to expect, but we did promise no spoilers in this post.

Do you think the Williams brothers have another hit on their hands?
