Fiona Shaw guest stars in the second season of BAPTISTE, the spinoff of THE MISSING. The acclaimed series follows retired detective Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo) as he delves into Budapest’s corrupt underworld to find a British Ambassador’s family who go missing on a skiing holiday in the Hungarian mountains.

Ambassador Emma Chambers (Shaw) is thrust into the crosshairs of Baptiste’s most complex case to date, as the detective navigates an untrustworthy Hungarian police force and international media interest as he hunts for her husband and two sons.

Season 2 is a “heartstopping whodunnit” according to London’s The Guardian.
