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

The cast, air date and a first trailer have all been revealed.

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?"

The Capture cast

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.

Also in the cast are Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Hand Of God), Famke Janssen (X Men, Taken), Ben Miles (The Crown, Coupling), Laura Haddock (Transformers: The Last Knight, Guardians Of The Galaxy), Lia Williams (The Crown, Kiri), Sophia Brown (Clique, Marcella) and Paul Ritter (Chernobyl, Friday Night Dinner).

The Capture is written and directed by the Bafta award-winning filmmaker Ben Chanan.

The Capture start date

The Capture continues on TV on Tuesday, 10 September at 9PM with its second episode.

The series will air across six episodes on BBC One.

You'll be able to watch on TV as well as online via the BBC iPlayer.

In episode 2 tonight, the truth about Shaun Emery's crime isn’t as clear as it first appeared to DI Carey, as crucial CCTV evidence is redacted by a mysterious MI5 officer. This surprise development forces Carey, Flynn and Latif to scramble for more evidence.

But with forensics drawing a blank on Shaun's car, Commander Hart offering little support, and weak witness statements, Carey is forced to release Shaun.

After a run-in with his ex-partner Karen, who is enraged by his failure to pick up their daughter from school, Shaun is determined to prove his innocence and enlists best mate Mat to help him break into Hannah’s apartment in search of clues.

Closely followed by a suspicious Carey on CCTV, and Flynn and Latif on foot, Shaun somehow manages to evade Carey’s watch, forcing her to question an even more problematic issue – the surveillance network itself.
