Initial press releases of In Deep stated "Life as an undercover detective is demanding. One slip-up can result in disaster, something that Liam Ketman (Nick Berry) and Garth O Hanlon (Stephen Tompkinson) know only too well. The pressure of leading complicated double lives means that sacrifices must be made for the job and the impact on their personal lives is immense." Liam Ketman is described as "a family man whose marriage is under strain because of his job as an undercover detective". Garth O'Hanlon is described as a "character apparently devoid of emotional or family entanglements who deals with often extreme violence as part of his job".
