Criminal Justice

Season 1 (2009)

All ten episodes from the first two series of the tense BBC drama examining the English justice system. In the first series, when Ben Coulter (Ben Whishaw) decides to take his father's cab one night without permission, events take an unexpected course, leading to him being arrested on suspicion of murder. Discovered with a dead girl, and with the murder weapon in his hand, Ben's pleas of innocence appear hopeless. The circumstantial evidence levelled against him demonstrates what devastating changes the criminal justice system can make to a life. In series two, Joe Miller (Matthew MacFadyen) is a barrister at the height of his professional powers. He is married to the fragile Juliet (Maxine Peake), isolated at home with her 13-year-old daughter Ella (Alice Sykes) and subject to sexually violent attacks by her husband. When Juliet stabs Joe in their bed one night, a chain of events is set in motion that takes them on an uncompromising journey through the ins and outs of the criminal justice system.
