Barrister William Travers finds he can run but he can't hide

William Travers and Mr Hyde: James Purefoy's barrister finds his dark past catching up with him

Fantastic! A new drama series in which the hero isn't a detective. Instead, William Travers (James Purefoy) is a criminal barrister who (after some sort of traumatic, nervous-breakdown-provoking experience we don't know much about yet) has moved from the pressure cooker of the London legal industry to the ostensibly more laid-back environs of Ipswich. He used to specialise in murder cases, but now he swears he's given them up.

I watched episodes one and two of this series and was impressed.James Purefoy is pretty good as the barrister and I love the fast moving direction.Dervla Kirwan is more attractive as she gets older and suits the part of supportive wife. Thank you for this review.
