The Escape Artist Features In New BBC One Original British Drama Trail

BBC One will include exclusive first look footage of The Escape Artist starring David Tennant in their brand new Original British Drama trail which debuts tomorrow. 

The new trail will be posted online at 9am tomorrow morning and will also include first glimpses of the new series of Sherlock and of Peter Capaldi in The Musketeers, both due in 2014.

The BBC have not stated whether the trailer will feature any footage from the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special starring David with Matt Smith and John Hurt.

The Escape Artist is an original three-part suspense thriller set in the world of criminal law, expected on BBC One in October. David Tennant plays Will Burton, a talented junior barrister who specialises in spiriting people out of tight legal corners, hence his nickname of “The Escape Artist”. Will is in high demand as he has never lost a case. But when his talents acquit the prime suspect in a horrific murder trial, that brilliance comes back to bite him with unexpected and chilling results. Created and written by David Wolstencroft (Spooks, Shooting Dogs), The Escape Artist stars David Tennant (Doctor Who, True Love), Toby Kebbell (RocknRolla, Black Mirror), Sophie Okonedo (The Slap, Criminal Justice), and Ashley Jensen (Extras, Ugly Betty).
