QUOTE(BBC)
In law, there is the accused and the victim. In life, itís not that simple.
The Victim is a thriller told through the eyes of the plaintiff and the accused. Set within Scotlandís unique legal system, the drama asks the question: who really, is the victim?

Kelly Macdonald plays Anna Dean, whose son was murdered 15 years ago. She is accused of revealing his killerís new identity online and conspiring to have them murdered. Has the anger of a grieving mother turned her into a criminal? What is she capable of doing in her sonís name?

Hard-working family man Craig Myers (James Harkness) is viciously attacked after being identified online as a notorious child murderer. Should Craig keep his head down or try to prove his innocence? Is he a convicted murderer, or simply the tragic victim of mistaken identity?

The Victim follows the progress of a trial in Edinburghís High Court, while covering the events leading up to the legal proceedings, and the criminal investigation led by DI Steven Grover (John Hannah) - who has his own reasons for wanting to crack the case.

Craig and Anna are pitted against each other, but our sympathies will be divided. New potential suspects will be revealed and long buried secrets unearthed as the story builds to a final, devastating climax.




Starts next Monday on BBC and I think (?) it's split across the entire week!

This looks completely up my street - as I said in a Lounge thread recently, I really am interested on the impact highly publicised 'accusations'.

Very strong lead too.

Well this was very good! I'm glad it's being stripped over four nights as it's only until tomorrow to wait for episode 2! *.*
