Anthony Horowitz follows up his ITV1 drama Collision with Injustice, a five-part psychological thriller. James Purefoy stars as William Travers, a defence barrister who has moved his family from London to Ipswich for an initially undisclosed reason.

His adoring wife is played by Dervla Kirwan, a former publisher who, slightly resentfully, has given up her career to support her husband. While some of the characters are predictable, this drama has fewer than its predecessor, and gives more time to explore them, allowing the actors to give depth to their performance. Injustice appeals to your curiosity instantly, and may become one of the better British crime dramas of the year.
