Three-part BBC drama series starring David Tennant as a star barrister whose abilities threaten to get him into trouble. Will Burton (Tennant) is such an expert at extricating his clients from the toughest situations that he has never lost a case. Some may argue that his success has led him to become slightly unscrupulous, a point that appears to be proved when Will helps free the prime suspect for a violent murder. Will may be about to taught a lesson in the harshest manner when the acquittal leads to chilling consequences. Toby Kebbell, Sophie Okonedo and Ashley Jensen co-star.

Harrowing drama set during the Rwandan genocide in 1994.
Joe Connor (Hugh Dancy) is a British schoolteacher who takes up a teaching post and arrives in the Rwandan capital just as ethnic and tribal tensions start to increase between the Hutu and Tutsi groups. As the growing tensions starts to spill into the corridors of his school, Joe strikes up a friendship with Catholic priest Father Christopher (John Hurt), who has come to the country as a missionary.
When violence erupts in the country, Joe's school becomes the base for a Belgian peacekeeping force, and along with Father Christopher, Joe decides to remain behind and use the school as a refuge for the persecuted Tutsis - until the Belgian soldiers leave, and they are all put in terrible danger.
First, there's the good news: George and Charlie are on their last mission for the Agency before leaving the spy game and relaxing into an early retirement. Then there's the bad news: their final mission is to kill each other. In the blink of an eye, these two friends become enemies-until it occurs to them that, just this once, they might not want to follow orders. Flipping a coin to decide their fate, they set off on an international round of espionage - jetting from England to Paris before heading to the United States in a race to find out why their bosses seem to want them dead. The unexpected answer stuns them both and threatens to bring down the agency itself
The stunning debut novel from the creator of SPOOKS. Meet Charlie. An everyday bloke. Good news is, he has a job. Bad news is, it's in a photo kiosk. He whiles away the hours with his rather eccentric colleague George. But appearances can be deceptive. You see, there is one line of work where taking the world at face value can be very foolish indeed. Where trusting someone - anyone - is the most dangerous thing you can ever do. The truth is, Charlie and George have not been very honest with each other. The truth is, this isn't their number one career choice. Their real jobs are a hell of a lot more dangerous. It's time to come clean. But the truth could very well kill them...
When an operation is mortally compromised, four first-year probationary agents, cut adrift in four corners of the world, must put Contact Zero to the test. But first they have to find it.
Good News, Bad News... a secret agent is trained to try to think of every possible outcome and eventuality. Who could have guessed, though, that a bureaucratic error would send two men to the same 'cover' job, working in a shabby photo-processing booth, where each must keep his real identity secret from the other, while awaiting orders. Or that those orders would be to assassinate... each other. Thrown together by this apparently ghastly mistake, Charlie and George decide to go on the run together. In the whole world, the only people they can trust are each other. Or can they? Slick, clever, teasing and suspenseful, full of tradecraft for the traditional espionage fan and a modern sensibility for a whole new generation of readers, who might well be more used to watching Spooks.
Who, what or where is Contact Zero? Deep in the mythology of the Service, whispered in training, clung to in moments of despair, is the belief that it is out there, the last chance saloon. You think you're beaten, betrayed and utterly alone, but maybe you're not. Maybe you get your one shot at rescue, if not redemption. Contact Zero: run by members of the Service, for members of the Service. When an operation is mortally compromised in David Wolstencroft's fabulous second novel, four first-year probationary agents, cut adrift in four corners of the World, must put Contact Zero to the test. But first they have to find it. And maybe one of the youngsters isn't quite as innocent as the others...
Seven spies from a recent graduating class are killed, and the three left behind must join forces and search for a legendary contact who may be their only hope for sanctuary.
