The Escape Artist

David Tennant (Doctor Who) stars as Will Burton, a junior barrister who specializes in spiriting people out of tight legal corners, hence his nickname-The Escape Artist. Much to the aggravation of his courtroom rival, Maggie Gardner (Sophie Okonedo), Will has never lost a case. Will's talents acquit serial killer Liam Foyle of murder, and it is only a matter of time until Foyle kills again.
