The Escape Artist is a British drama (mini-series) about a murder, a man, a consequence and judgment. The main character is a lawyer who never loses a case... one of his cases well... comes back to torment him. The story is legitimate, the actors are well cast but the depiction and execution of this series was not very good. Too many slow placement scenes, to much mystery where it wasn't needed and the show just didn't grab my attention.

Two great British actors in a farfetched murder mystery that could have been something more (like a very good 90 min thriller) but is still very much enternaining.
