VIDEO: Trailer For The Escape Artist Starring David Tennant

BBC One have posted a trailer for The Escape Artist, the brand new three part legal thriller starring David Tennant coming soon to BBC One.

The Escape Artist, written by David Wolstencroft (Spooks), is an original suspense thriller set in the world of criminal law. 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.

The Escape Artist also stars Toby Kebbell (RocknRolla, Black Mirror), Sophie Okonedo (The Slap, Criminal Justice), and Ashley Jensen (Extras, Ugly Betty).
