Here's how to watch Crossfire online from anywhere. 

Crossfire is an edge-of-your-seat BBC thriller from best-selling author and Apple Tree Yard creator, Louise Doughty. The three-part series follows Jo and a group of her close friends and family who find their world turned upside down after their holiday paradise is transformed into a living nightmare. 

The group (led by Jo who's played by Keeley Hawes) has jetted off for a fancy holiday in the Canary Islands, but their luxury resort comes under attack from a group of gunmen who are out for revenge. From this point, the thriller sees the guests and hotel staff forced to make some split-second and life-or-death decisions, with the consequences set to linger long after the attack.
