Fresh from his best actor award for Broadchurch at the TV Choice awards, man of the moment David Tennant stars as The Escape Artist in this brand new BBC drama, released on DVD on 28th October 2013, courtesy of Acorn Media.

Talented junior barrister, Will Burton (Tennant), specialises in spiriting people out of tight legal corners, which has earned him his nickname - The Escape Artist. But when Will's talents clear his latest client of a brutal and high profile murder, the consequences are chilling.

This thrilling action drama, stars a fantastic cast including Toby Kebbell (Dead Man's Shoes), Ashley Jensen (Extras) Sophie Okonedo (May Day) and Tony Gardner (Lead Balloon), and will be released on DVD on 28th October 2013, from Acorn Media, distributors of top TV dramas such as Broadchurch and What Remains, following its transmission on BBC One.

Will Burton is at the top of his game, having never lost a case, he is in demand much to the chagrin of his courtroom nemesis, Maggie Gardner. He works by the simple mantra that everyone deserves a defence, allowing his genius to blossom without being impeded by conscience.

Before leaving for a short break in the country with his wife Kate and their son, Will is handed a case, the horrific, brutal murder of a young woman. The defendant Liam Foyle (Kebbell) cuts a sinister figure: psychologically invasive and physically imposing. This time however, the outcome of the case leads to a shocking game of cat and mouse that will change his life forever.

The Escape Artist is a truly spellbinding drama that is guaranteed to keep audiences on the edge of their seats until the final credits roll.
