Episode 6
 
Emma, Annie and Jason are left devastated when Kevin tragically loses his battle in hospital. Still determined to find the truth, Emma struggles to be heard but no-one is listening to the evidence she has.
 
Matthew is worried about what Emma knows, though, but Heather reassures him that nothing connects her evidence to Linda’s death. However, with pressure mounting, Kretchmer isn’t so convinced and urges Heather to stay in the UK to fix the situation.
 
Meanwhile, DCS Greenwood tracks down the mother of Rachel Leigh, Linda’s friend and the last person known to see her alive. Visiting her in a nursing home in London, Emma hopes that she may be able to give her the final piece of the puzzle. Convinced that she’s being followed and aware of a threat to her life, will Emma manage to finally uncover the truth?
 
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.
