James Purefoy (Rome) leads a distinguished cast featuring Dervla Kirwan (Ballykissangel), Charlie Creed-Miles (Five Days), and Nathaniel Parker (The Inspector Lynley Mysteries) in a taut five-part thriller of murder, conspiracy, secrets, and guilt. Created by Anthony Horowitz (Foyle's War, Collision), Injustice merges legal drama, police investigation, and high-tension suspense in an atmosphere of moral ambiguity.
Purefoy plays defense barrister William Travers, who has fled from London murder trials to the peace of the Suffolk countryside with his family. He is called upon to defend an old friend in a homicide that may be much more than it seems, even as death strikes close to home and he becomes a target of investigation himself.

William Travers (played by Purefoy) is a barrister who's given up on big-city law after suffering a mental breakdown upon learning that he successfully represented a criminal responsible for a heinous accident. Instead, he prefers representing petty criminals from his home in rural Suffolk. However, when a past friend accused of murder asks for his representation personally, Travers begrudgingly agrees ... but what he eventually uncovers will push him to his psychological limits, forcing him to question what he personally believes in.
So far as the story is concerned, INJUSTICE is a bit of an anomaly. It isn't easily classified. It's one part police procedural, one part legal thriller, and one part character drama. There are several different storylines revolving around the main plot; yet all of them congeal on the premise of what justice in an unjust world looks like. Granted, there are elements here which appear to be circumstantial as they're revealed, but, as the investigation unfolds, the audience finds out how interwoven this shared reality of theirs truly is.Read more ›
SUBTITLES provided for DVDs. TV airing June 2011
Episode 1: Defense Barrister Will Travers (James Purefoy-`Dance to the Music of Time') moves to the Suffolk countryside. Nice scenery, but too much action and flashbacks to enjoy the setting very long. Wife Jane (Dervla Kirwan) teaches to boys in a juvenile detention facility. Will is troubled over a violent past, exposed slowly via the flashbacks. His old friend Martin (Nathaniel Parker-`Land Girls') is arrested for murdering his lover/secretary (Jayne Wisener). Solicitor Miss Chandra (Sasha Behar) asks Travers to take the case after refusing murder defense for 2 years following a breakdown. Murders multiply. DI Wenborn (Charlie Creed-Miles) investigates with a grudge. He's ordered around by a nasty cop boss (David Schofield-`Land Girls' `Pirates of the Caribbean' `Blue Murder'). Multi-plots revealed.
___ 2: Travers gets the facts from his accused friend (but more there in the relationship to discover). And he recalls his night with the murdered Lucy (brief nude shot). He also explains his laptop disappeared at the same time, hardware owned by Qestrel Oil. A connection to the murder? Travers is stalked.Read more ›
James Purefoy plays William Travers he is a good looking defense lawyer, lives in Suffolk and has a lovely family. Though on closer inspection, all does not seem right. It seems he has had a recent breakdown. A recurrent nightmare leads to the death of a man, though it takes two episodes to get us there. William's wife is teaching literature at the local boys reformatory, and has a special student that she may mentor.
Then there's DI Mark Wenborn, played by Charlie Creed-Miles who had a colleague who was crooked, and, now Charlie's a mean man, not liked by anyone. He has his eyes on Travers and that can't lead to anything good.
One of Willam's old school friends has been arrested for murder, and he has requested William as his barrister. This means William will need to return to London, the scene of his breakdown. Most of the story is told in flashbacks, and it is interesting, indeed, to look at the evidence and clues as they accumulate. This has turned into a well planned and laid out series. They may want to look at the first half of episode one and beef it up, it almost lost me.

The acting was good but the story jumped all over the place. It was a ridiculously implausible story from beginning to end and all the ways it went back and forth in between. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Sandal
