The acclaimed RTÉ rural police drama 'Single Handed' returns to RTÉ One for a new two-part story on 1 and 2 January.

'Single Handed: The Stolen Child' follows Garda Sergeant Jack Driscoll (Owen McDonnell) as he tries to find a toddler who has been taken by his estranged father (Nick Lee).

His investigation is hampered by the strained relations behind the child's mother (Charlene McKenna) and her in-laws (Ann Marie Horan and Steve Blount).

Written by Barry Simner and directed by Anthony Byrne, 'The Stolen Child' was filmed on location in Connemara.
