David Tennant is under threat in new trailer for The Escape Artist

The three-part legal thriller co-starring Sophie Okonedo, Ashley Jensen and Toby Kebbell is due to air on BBC1 later this autumn

A new drama starring David Tennant, you say? Judging by his track record – and this awesome new trailer – The Escape Artist will definitely be worth a watch when it lands on BBC1 later this autumn… 


The former Doctor Who and Broadchurch star plays talented junior barrister Will Burton (Tennant), who believes everyone deserves a defence. 

But after Will’s professional brilliance gets Liam Foyle, the prime suspect in a horrific murder trial, off the hook, events come back to bite him in a way he could never have imagined. 

The three-part thriller also stars Toby Kebbell, Sophie Okonedo and Ashley Jensen.
