Masterpiece Mystery!

The Escape Artist, Part One

Season 44, Episode 20 of 48

David Tennant ("Doctor Who") stars as a brilliant defense lawyer with a storybook family and a potent nickname, "The Escape Artist," for his ability to spring the obviously guilty. Then he gets a trial that changes his life forever. Written by David Wolstencroft (Spooks), this gripping legal thriller co-stars Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) as the hero's rival, along with a courtroom full of ambitious attorneys and one very unnerving defendant. Star defense lawyer Will Burton finds his happy family life threatened when he takes the case of an unsavory suspect accused of a torture killing.
