The Escape Artist
Will Burton is a talented junior barrister who has never lost a case. His skill at snatching victory in even the most desperate and hopeless cases has earned him the nickname 'The Escape Artist'. On top of this he has a devoted family and two beautiful homes, and his career seems to be on the ascent. However, everything changes when he accepts the case of Liam Foyle, the suspect in a brutal, ritualised killing. Even though Will suspects that Foyle is indeed guilty, he cannot be anything but brilliant and secures release for his client. When Will cannot bring himself to shake Foyle's hand after the trial, the affronted Foyle sets his sights firmly upon Will and all that he holds dear.

The Escape Artist was written by David Wolstencroft and directed by Brian Welsh for BBC One. The cast also includes Toby Kebbell, Sophie Okonedo and Ashley Jensen
