Mr Bates vs The Post Office Premieres on ITV1

In the gripping third episode of new four part drama, “Mr Bates vs the Post Office,” we are taken on a journey of justice and redemption. This episode focuses on Alan and Paula, who establish a mediation scheme to provide a path for sub-postmasters to seek compensation. However, for Martin Griffiths, it is too late. Pursued by the Post Office for alleged financial discrepancies amounting to £60,000, Martin tragically takes his own life. This devastating event serves as a stark reminder of the high stakes involved in this battle against the Post Office.

Alan finds himself increasingly frustrated by the slow progress and bureaucratic hurdles that hinder the mediation process. His determined efforts are met with resistance, prompting James Arbuthnot MP to publicly accuse the Post Office of undermining the entire scheme. Hope emerges from unexpected sources: a whistleblower comes forward, shedding new light on the injustice, while a lawyer believes Alan finally has a chance to secure the necessary funds to take the Post Office to court.

The stellar cast includes Toby Jones, Monica Dolan, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Lia Williams, Alex Jennings, Ian Hart, Katherine Kelly, Shaun Dooley, Will Mellor, Clare Calbraith, Lesley Nicol, Amit Shah, and Adam James.

The series is written by acclaimed screenwriter Gwyneth Hughes, who has previously delivered compelling narratives in productions such as “Tom Jones,” “Honour,” and “Vanity Fair.” The drama is produced by ITV Studios and Little Gem.

“Mr Bates vs the Post Office” sheds light on one of the biggest miscarriages of justice in British legal history. Countless innocent sub-postmasters and postmistresses found themselves wrongly accused of theft, fraud, and false accounting, all due to a defective IT system. Many of these individuals faced prosecution, with some even being unjustly imprisoned for crimes they did not commit. The devastating impact on their lives cannot be overstated, making this scandal a dark chapter in the annals of British justice.

Tune in to ITV1 on Wednesday at 9.00pm to witness the continuing battle for justice and discover the true extent of this tragic miscarriage of justice.
