The Capture 2019 cast, air date, number of episodes and plot synopsis & summary - plus how to stream and watch online

Here’s all you need to know about new BBC One drama thriller The Capture.

The new series concludes this Tuesday night (October 8) at 9PM on BBC One.

A synopsis of the show reads: “When soldier Shaun Emery’s conviction for a murder in Afghanistan is overturned due to flawed video evidence, he returns to life as a free man with his young daughter.

“But when damning CCTV footage from a night out in London comes to light, Shaun’s life takes a shocking turn and he must soon fight for his freedom once again. With DI Rachel Carey drafted in to investigate Shaun’s case, she quickly learns that the truth can sometimes be a matter of perspective. Should she trust Shaun Emery?

“The Capture is an acutely timed thriller that looks at a troubling world of fake news and the extraordinary capabilities of the intelligence services. In this ‘post-truth era’, can we really believe what we see?”

Holliday Grainger (Strike, Patrick Melrose) and Callum Turner (War & Peace, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald) star as DI Rachel Carey and Shaun Emery respectively.

The Capture spoilers

In episode 5 last week, neither Carey (Holliday Grainger) nor Shaun (Callum Turner) were prepared for what lied ahead, as the truth, in all its complexity and ambiguity, was revealed to them.

The series concludes this evening when Jessica Mallory (Famke Janssen) arrives in London.

Secrets of the intelligence services are in danger of being exposed. Shaun’s (Callum Turner) future, and the fate of our criminal justice system, lie with one person.

Carey (Holliday Grainger) has a choice to make.

The Capture airs on BBC One, Tuesday nights at 9PM.
