David Tennant in The Escape Artist. It's fabulous! I watched both episodes last night, and I was on the edge of my seat.
Fabulous acting, terrific production values, and very suspenseful story. Some
of the dialogue got past Frank.. Scottish accent and all, but that just added to
the production for me. Don't miss it! Scroll down for the trailer.

David Tennant (Dr Who, Broadchurch)
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.
This gripping legal thriller costars Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) as the hero's rival, along with a courtroom full of ambitious attorneys and one very unnerving defendant. Created and written by David Wolstencroft, the three-part drama originally aired in the UK last Fall. It stars Tennant alongside a great cast that includes Tony Kebbell and Ashley Jensen.
The law often seems like an intellectual exercise,” said Wolstencroft.
“But scratch under the surface, and it’s all blood and guts. I wanted
to write a thriller set in the legal world that’s as much about those
primal feelings as it is about the twists and turns of the case. David
Tennant is one of the most accomplished and iconic actors of his
generation. Seeing him in Will's shoes is incredibly exciting."
