Accused: Series 2 (2010)
Monday 3rd June 2013
In the docks of Jimmy McGovern's BAFTA Award winning second series of Accused, released on DVD on 5th August 2013 by Acorn Media, stands a sensational ensemble of British Acting talent. They are the innocent, the guilty and the somewhere in between.
Starring Olivia Colman (Broadchurch), Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Sheridan Smith (Mrs Biggs), Anne Marie Duff (Parade's End), Anna Maxwell Martin (The Bletchley Circle) and Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire) and directed by David Blair (The Street, Accused) and Ashley Pearce (Downton Abbey).
These modern-day morality plays are fraught with emotion as they delve in to the tangled issues of gender stereotypes, a mother's unconditional love, familial grief and paranoia, as well as challenging the justice system itself. With cases of gang violence, murder, sexual assault and crimes of passion, are these everyday defendants the guilty or the victims?
- Mo's Story - Mo Murray (Anne-Marie Duff) has taken a stand against drugs, gangs and gun crime in her community but now she stands alongside her mother Maureen (Ruth Sheen) and her 17-year-old son Jake (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) in the dock. Why?
- Stephen's Story - 17-year-old teenager Stephen Cartwright (Robert Sheehan) stands charged with a serious offence as his anxious father Peter (John Bishop) looks on
- Tracie's Story - Tina Dakin (Anna Maxwell Martin) stands silence and tense in the dock. She has told the truth and now all she can do is wait to hear the verdict
- Tina's Story - Simon Gaskell (Sean Bean) stands nervously in the dock as he awaits the jury's verdict. Will he walk free or go down? Simon is a college English teacher who specialises in poetry and has a secret. His alter ego is a transvestite called Tracie Tremarco, who is gay, lonely, and looking for love. But trawling bars in Manchester dressed up to the nines, tottering on stilettos, and ready to pull has not produced a lasting or truly fulfilling relationship
