drama / 9.00pm / ITV
There’s a lot to get your head around in the opener of this complex thriller starring Helen Mccrory as lawyer Emma Banville, who makes herself unpopular by investigating potential miscarriages of justice. Her latest project is Kevin Russell: he’s served 14 years for a teen’s murder, but is he innocent? Don’t expect this to be a run-ofthe-mill crime drama, though. Emma’s own past, her link to a suspected terrorist and her bid to adopt all have a part to play as her investigation takes her in surprising international directions. Look out for Michael Gambon as an academic, while John Bishop shows off his dramatic chops as Emma’s photographer partner.
