BBC One have today released the trailer for the new legal thriller The Escape Artist starring David Tennant.
The Escape Artist
Burton (David Tennant),
a talented junior barrister of peerless intellect and winning charm,
specialises in spiriting people out of tight legal corners, hence his nickname
- The Escape Artist.
Much to the aggravation of his courtroom rival, Maggie Gardner, Will is in high demand, as he has never lost a case.
But when Will’s talents acquit Liam Foyle, who is standing trial for an horrific and high-profile murder, that courtroom brilliance comes back to bite him. Foyle walks free, but he is a serial killer. It’s only a matter of time until he finds his next victim.
And, sure enough, he kills again.
The Escape Artist also stars Ashley Jensen, Sophie Okonedo and Toby Kebbell. The series begins on BBC One in the week commencing 26th October.
