This promising legal drama from the makers of Line of Duty follows the investigation into the disappearance of a Bristol student and the arrest and trial of a fellow student charged with conspiring to murder her. Celine Buckens impresses as the latter, a troubled posh girl whose behaviour threatens to alienate the duty solicitor assigned to defend her. A fascinating look at how attitudes towards class and gender can impact the legal process, it’s shot through with dark humour.
