Peter Capaldi and Cush Jumbo star in first trailer for Criminal Record
The pair play opposing detectives in the upcoming gritty drama.
The pair will clash over an old murder case, with Capaldi's veteran Hegarty determined to protect his legacy and Jumbo's up-and-coming Lenker standing in his way.
Their tense face-off was already teased in a set of first-look images, though they didn't reveal much about the case that brought them together.
The new footage changes that, teasing an epic confrontation between the pair when Jumbo begins looking into one of Hegarty's old cases involving a Black man convicted of murder.

Despite calls from fellow coppers to let it go, claiming that "Danny's one of the good ones", it's clear Jumbo's Lenker isn't one to back down.
The clip also suggests that Hegarty might not be so good after all, as we get a glimpse of him delivering what appears to be a brown envelope full of cash to a shady-looking fellow.
