The BBC have released the first image from upcoming drama The Capture




The series, which stars Holliday Grainger and Callum Turner will arrive in the autumn.

When soldier Shaun Emery’s (Turner) conviction for a murder in Afghanistan is overturned due to flawed video evidence, he returns to life as a free man with his young daughter. But when damning CCTV footage from a night out in London comes to light, Shaun’s life takes a shocking turn and he must soon fight for his freedom once again. With DI Rachel Carey (Grainger) drafted in to investigate Shaun’s case, she quickly learns that the truth can sometimes be a matter of perspective. Should she trust Shaun Emery?

The Capture is described as an acutely timed thriller that looks at a troubling world of fake news and the extraordinary capabilities of the intelligence services.  In this ‘post-truth era’, can we really believe what we see?

 The six-part series is made for BBC One by Heyday Television and NBCUniversal International Studios, and also stars Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Hand Of God), Famke Janssen (X Men, Taken), Ben Miles (The Crown, Coupling), Laura Haddock (Transformers: The Last Knight, Guardians Of The Galaxy), Lia Williams (The Crown, Kiri), Sophia Brown (Clique, Marcella) and Paul Ritter (Chernobyl, Friday Night Dinner)

The Capture will be part of BBC One’s Autumn drama slate.
