In this compelling five-part psychological thriller, a defence barrister is faced with the proposition: what can you do when you have defended the indefensible? When the man you have helped proved innocent is, in fact, guilty? James Purefoy stars as a criminal barrister recovering from a traumatic series of events who finds himself being pursued by a ruthless police detective. Two men from completely different worlds whose professional lives will intertwine in a dangerous game of cat and mouse with murder at its heart. Nail-biting tension builds through a journey of moral dilemmas that hurtle towards a devastating conclusion.

Shown over 5 consecutive nights in June 2011 this drama was partly filmed in Felixstowe. The screen shots show Beach Road East and a house that doesn’t exist in Felixstowe, Chuffers pub which doubles as Ipswich rail station, the road into Felixstowe docks including Anzani House, a trip along Sea Road which features a block of non existent high rise flats and the obligatory use of Felixstowe Docks.
