Joanne Froggatt is a Dark Angel in new ITV series

Joanna Frogatt’s new role is a world away from Downton Abbey as she stars as a Victorian poisoner in ITV’s new drama, Dark Angel.

Frogatt plays Mary Ann, a loving wife and mother, newly returned to her native North East of England. But faced with abject poverty and an ailing husband, she is ruthlessly determined to pursue her desires – and a better life…

Mary Ann is a very female serial killer, a poisoner whose methods leave no visible scars, allowing her tally of victims to mount unsuspected by a Victorian society unable to conceive of a woman capable of such terrible crimes. Travelling around the North East, she insinuates herself into unsuspecting families, marrying and creating new families of her own – before killing them, taking their money and moving on.

Through adultery, bigamy, fraud and murder, Mary Ann betters herself socially and financially. But the more she kills, the greater the risk her crimes will finally be exposed…
