Series overview:
 
Lee Ingleby and Hermione Norris lead the cast of new ITV drama serial Innocent
 
Innocent is a new four-part contemporary drama series written by acclaimed writers Chris Lang and Matt Arlidge starring Hermione Norris and Lee Ingleby and produced by TXTV.
 
They are joined by an exciting ensemble cast including Daniel Ryan (Home Fires, Mount Pleasant), Angel Coulby (Merlin, The Tunnel), Nigel Lindsay (Victoria, Foyle’s War), Elliot Cowan (Da Vinci’s Demons, Frankenstein Chronicles) and Adrian Rowlins (Harry Potter, Dickensian).
 
The drama series tells the compelling story of David Collins (Lee Ingleby) who is living a nightmare.
 
Convicted of murdering his wife Tara, David has served seven years in prison. He’s lost everything he held dear: his wife, his two children and even the house he owned. He’s always protested his innocence and faces the rest of his life behind bars. His situation couldn’t be more desperate.
 
Despised by his wife’s family and friends, his only support has been his faithful brother Phil (Daniel Ryan) who has stood by him, sacrificing his own career and livelihood to mount a tireless campaign to prove his brother’s innocence.
 
Episode 3
 
Tom awakens from a night of heavy drinking and he tries to piece together details of the night before. His numerous, desperate calls to Melissa all remain unanswered. 
 
Phil admits to David that he's been laid off. It's a return to form when David hands him some cash in an attempt to partly repay his debt of gratitude he feels towards his brother. But the cash comes at a high price as David sells his story to a newspaper.
 
The Police investigation focuses on Alice and any motivation for killing her sister. There are many facts that could point to her as the murderer and indeed Rob. Seizing on the possibilities the revelations suggest, Cathy calls in Rob for questioning. Caught off guard Rob confronts Alice wondering what she's said to incriminate him so forcibly. 
 
Under close questioning Rob maintains innocence. He was out driving but his route undoubtedly have taken him past Tara's route home but he adamantly denies having seen her. Cathy also asks Rob whether his job entails working with ropes at the boatyard. 
 
Cathy's case review reveals so many shortcomings in Will's original investigation that Hillman suspends him which threatens to destroy his career.
