When justice breaks down, all the rules change. The event drama tackles a universal question... indeed it’s at the heart of every country’s legal system. How does a defence barrister live with himself if he finds out that his client is guilty?

William Travers (James Purefoy) is just such a man. Famous for defending the underdog, he is recovering from a nervous breakdown and the complete uprooting of his family and his work. When we meet him, he is working on low-level cases in rural Suffolk.

His life is thrown off balance a second time when he happens to see a figure from the past across a station platform. At the same time, an old university friend asks him to defend him for a murder he swears he didn’t do. Travers finds himself plunged into a conspiracy that stretches far beyond the courtroom while fighting off the forces that may once again destroy him. Injustice is a complex, nail-biting drama... an examination of morality on many levels. It takes the audience on a journey full of surprises until it reaches a devastating conclusion.

The cast includes James Purefoy (Camelot, Diamonds, Rome, Frankenstein), Charlie Creed-Miles (Criminal Justice, Five Days, Skins), Nathaniel Parker (Lewis, My Family, Land Girls, Hotel Babylon) Dervla Kirwan (The Silence, Material Girl, Law & Order UK) and Jill Green (Foyles War, Collision, Vexed). It is created by Anthony Horowitz (Alex Rider spy novels, Collision and Foyle's War) and directed by Colm McCarthy (The Deep, Tudors, Murphy’s Law, Spooks, Hustle). The producer is Eve Gutierrez (Vexed).
