Looking to watch The Catch online? Here's where you can find the suspenseful thriller based on the bestselling novel by T. M. Logan (opens in new tab) (whose work also inspired The Holiday).

The Catch is centered around local fisherman Ed Collier (Jason Watkins, McDonald & Dodds). Ed is a proud father and husband who is determined to keep his family together at any cost. Ed's life is thrown into disarray when his daughter, Abbie (Poppy Gilbert, Chloe) gets involved with the handsome and successful Ryan Wilson (Aneurin Barnard, 1899). 

On paper, Ryan's a real catch, but Ed's instincts tell him that Ryan's not to be trusted and that Abbie could well be in danger. Ed's life soon spirals out of control as he juggles his struggling business, his newfound worries about Abbie's new partner, and a dark secret that comes back to haunt him. 

From what we've heard so far, The Catch looks like it could be one of the best Channel 5 dramas currently available. If you're looking to get sucked into a new drama, here's where you can watch The Catch online.
