BBC One’s brand new thriller, The Capture, premiered Wednesday, September 3.
Written and directed by Bafta Award-winning filmmaker Ben Chanan, it sees Holliday Grainger star as a detective while Callum Turner takes on the role of a flawed soldier. Here is everything you need to know.
When does The Capture start?
The six-part thriller launched Tuesday, September 3, 2019 on BBC One from 9pm to 10pm.
All six episodes will be available to watch on the BBC iPlayer app once it has aired on television.
A trailer for the new show was released on Wednesday, July 24, 2019, showing DI Rachel Carey (played by Holliday Grainger) investigating a mysterious case.
The newly promoted detective is tasked with looking into Shaun Emery’s (Callum Turner) conviction for a murder in Afghanistan.
What is The Capture about?
Set in London in a world of misinformation, fake news and the extraordinary technological capabilities of the intelligence services, The Capture is a timely surveillance thriller.
In this post-truth era the criminal justice relies heavily on video evidence but can we always trust what we see in the form of CCTV surveillance and facial recognition software.
Ben Chanan, The Capture’s award-winner writer and director, said: “I am incredibly excited to see The Capture brought to life by such a wonderful cast and crew.
“It’s an honour to come to work every day with these hugely talented people.”
