Accused - Series 2

4 x 1 hour

In the docks of Jimmy McGovern’s second series of Accused, stands a sensational ensemble of British Acting talent. They are the innocent, the guilty and the somewhere in between.

These modern-day morality plays are fraught with emotion as they delve in to the tangled issues of gender stereotypes, a mother’s unconditional love, familial grief and paranoia, as well as challenging the justice system itself. With cases of gang violence, murder, sexual assault and crimes of passion, are these everyday defendants the guilty or the victims? Or both?
