This gripping psychological thriller spans five parts and poses the question: what happens when you defend the indefensible? When your client, whom you’ve helped prove innocent, is actually guilty? James Purefoy takes on the role of a criminal barrister recovering from a traumatic experience, only to be pursued by a relentless police detective.

The collision of two vastly different worlds leads to a dangerous game of cat and mouse, with murder at its core. The tension builds as moral dilemmas arise, ultimately hurtling towards a devastating conclusion.

First aired in June 2011, this drama was shot in part in Felixstowe, featuring Beach Road East and a non-existent house. Chuffers pub doubles as Ipswich rail station, while Anzani House and Felixstowe Docks are also prominently featured. Furthermore, a trip along Sea Road exposes a block of non-existent high-rise flats close to the pier.
