Here’s a full list of who’s on the cast of Mr Bates vs the Post Office, the brand new ITV drama.

The story unfolds around a major injustice in the annals of British legal history, where numerous subpostmasters and postmistresses were falsely accused of theft, fraud and false accounting.

This miscarriage of justice was the result of a flawed IT system. Tragically, many innocent workers faced prosecution; some were even incarcerated for crimes they did not commit, leading to profound and lasting damage to their lives due to this scandal.
