The Victim (DVD)
Four-part BBC thriller starring John Hannah and Kelly Macdonald. An alleged child killer is assaulted. But who is the accused and who is the victim?
Set within Scotland’s unique legal system, this riveting BBC 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 killer’s new identity online and conspiring to have them murdered.
Hard-working family man Craig Myers (James Harkness) is viciously attacked after being identified online as a notorious child murderer. Is he a convicted murderer, or simply the tragic victim of mistaken identity?
The Victim follows the progress of a trial in Edinburgh’s 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.
