Mr Bates vs the Post Office cast

Mr Bates vs the Post Office has made its debut on ITV1 – here’s where to watch on TV and online.

Mr Bates vs the Post Office is a new four-part factual drama telling the true story of the British Post Office scandal.

The four-part series aims to portray one of the most egregious miscarriages of justice in the history of British law, where numerous sub-postmasters and postmistresses were erroneously implicated in crimes such as theft, fraud, and false accounting.

The root of these accusations was traced back to a flawed IT system, which led to a series of unfounded charges against these individuals. The forthcoming production seeks to delve into this complex and impactful story, highlighting the personal and professional turmoil faced by those unjustly accused.
