SARAH Lancashire looks battered, bruised and bloodied in grisly new images from the third series of cop drama Happy Valley.
And if the images are anything to go by, she looks to be going out with a bang.
Displaying a seemingly bloodied face, Catherine is seen in the aftermath of a police raid.
Meanwhile, Tommy Lee Royce – portrayed by James Norton – is seen with a radically different look in a prison cell.
Upcoming scenes will see Catherine discover the remains of a gangland murder victim in a drained reservoir.
It sparks a chain of events that unwittingly leads her straight back to Tommy Lee Royce.
Her grandson Ryan is now 16 and still living with Catherine, but he has ideas of his own about what kind of relationship he wants to have with the man Catherine refuses to acknowledge as his father.
Still battling the never-ending problem of drugs in the valley and those who supply them, Catherine is on the cusp of retirement.
Further information about the third season will be announced in due course.
Most recently airing on BBC One in 2016, Happy Valley is adored by viewers and critics alike, with series two attracting an average audience of 9.3million.
