The Trial: A Murder In The Family Series Premiere 21 May on Channel 4

Published

on

In a pioneering new series blending documentary and drama, a fictional murder case is tried in a real court, by eminent real-life legal professionals and a jury comprised of 12 randomly selected members of the public. Simon Davis (played by actor Michael Gould) is an academic accused of murdering his estranged wife Carla.

His defence team is led by renowned QC John Ryder, whose CV includes the Damilola Taylor murder trial; the prosecution is steered by the government’s new independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, Max Hill QC. Revealing the inner workings of the justice system as never seen before, the format provides unique insights into how both sides conduct their cases, from strategic debates to conferences with clients.

Presiding is Brian Barker, recently retired but formerly the most senior judge at the Old Bailey. As the trial begins, police officers and witnesses are called to give evidence and – as Simon and the jury look on – a picture is painted of the day when Carla Davis was killed. The series airs over five consecutive nights.

Directors: Nick Holt, Kath Mattock
Executive Producer: Jonathan Smith

Bancroft sarah parish episode 1

Airing over four consecutive nights Bancroft is a new thriller for ITV starring Sarah Parish as Det. Superintendent Elizabeth Bancroft. The series premieres on Monday 11 December at 9.00pm on ITV.

The formidable Det. Superintendent Elizabeth Bancroft is leading the charge against the violent Kamara gang. Meanwhile, DS Katherine Stevens is given a cold murder case. In 1990, Laura Fraser was stabbed 18 times in frenzied attack at home. As Elizabeth and Katherine’s paths cross for the first time, Katherine finds that there’s more to the Fraser case than it seems – and Elizabeth has some secrets in her past which may prove difficult to hide.

Linus Roache (Vikings, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) makes his return to British television. Linus plays Tim Fraser who is haunted by an unsolved crime. He has also been running from his past but his hidden shame can’t stay buried forever. Produced by Phil Collinson (Midwinter of the Spirit, Coronation Street, Dr Who) and directed by John Hayes (Vera, Home Fires), Bancroft explores what happens when heinous crimes, long buried, come back to haunt us.

Filmed on location in and around Bolton and the North West, this new series also features Amara Karan (The Night Of, Stan Lee’s Lucky Man), Adrian Edmondson (War and Peace, Prey), Art Malik (Cold Feet, Indian Summers, Homeland), Kenneth Cranham (War and Peace, Rome), Adam Long (Happy Valley, Home Fires), Lee Boardman (The Five, Da Vinci’s Demons) and Steve Evets (One of Us, Looking for Eric).
