Episode 3
 
After the previous night’s events, both of Emma’s clients are in prison, leaving her with an empty house. Putting pressure on her, DCS Greenwood demands information from Emma about the missing SIM card from Miriam’s phone, but Emma denies any knowledge. Desperate for Emma to help her get out, Miriam asks her to give the SIM card to Yusef’s cousin, but harbouring concerns about Yusef and his intentions, Emma is reluctant.
 
Meanwhile, Emma and Dominic meet Siobhan, a woman Tony Pullings photographed in 2003. With Siobhan telling Emma that Pullings hosted ‘parties’ that Linda attended, Emma confronts Staines about the new revelations, but he refuses to help her track down Pullings. Noticing that Linda is wearing a US fighter tie-pin in the photos, Emma is convinced that there’s an American connection to her death, so is determined to find Pullings to establish the link, with or without Staines’ help.
 
Following their fury that Emma wants to exhume Linda’s body, the Simms family also visit MP Matthew Wild to seek his help. Will he find a way of obstructing the exhumation that is vital to Emma’s case?
 
Series overview
 
Created by Homeland and 24 writer, Patrick Harbinson, and produced by leading independent programme makers, Mammoth Screen, brand new contemporary thriller Fearless launches on ITV this Summer.
 
Starring acclaimed actress Helen McCrory (Peaky Blinders, Penny Dreadful), the gripping six-part drama follows Emma Banville, a human rights lawyer known for defending lost causes, as she sets out to prove the innocence of Kevin Russell, who was convicted for the murder of a schoolgirl, Linda Simms, 14 years earlier: a crime which he maintains he didn’t commit.
 
Firmly believing there has been a miscarriage of justice, Emma is determined to reveal the truth behind Linda’s death and is prepared to go to extreme lengths to discover what happened and free Kevin. However, as Emma digs deeper into the case, risking her career, personal life and reputation, she begins to sense powerful forces at play within the police and intelligence services who want to stop her uncovering the truth.
