The Escape Artist: Start Time And Date

The BBC have confirmed that The Escape Artist starring David Tennant will begin on BBC One at 9pm on Tuesday 29th October. 

The Escape Artist
Will 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 (Sophie Okonedo), Will is in high demand, as he has never lost a case.

But when Will’s talents acquit Liam Foyle (Toby Kebbell), 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.
