Episode 4
 
As Kevin’s trial continues, the forensics seem to be proving his innocence and leading to an acquittal after 14 years. However, when the prosecution delivers a counter argument, Emma’s hopes of a ‘Not Guilty’ verdict are dashed. With Heather and Sir Alastair keen to bring the case to a close, will Kevin accept a plea of manslaughter to secure his freedom?
 
Meanwhile, Yusef sends word that he is in the UK and wants to meet with Emma. She travels to Birmingham to see him, tracked by Olivia Greenwood who is determined to uncover Yusef’s whereabouts. With Greenwood withholding vital information that Emma needs about Tony Pullings’ whereabouts and Emma refusing to disclose Yusef’s hiding place, the pair are at a stalemate.
 
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.
