David Tennant plays the legal equivalent of Houdini in new thriller, The Escape Artist. His terrifically talented barrister Will Burton is renowned for getting the accused out of the tightest of legal tight spots – which is exactly what he's done for shady criminal Liam Foyle (Toby Kebell). But at what price?
Episode two of David Wolstencroft's drama sees sadistic Foyle back in the dock, with Burton's nemesis, Maggie Gardner (Sophie Okonedo), leading his defence and determined to make a name for herself. But based on her charge's track record, she should watch out...
