5.0 out of 5 stars A THRILLER, CHILLER about a KILLER
Will Burton (David Tennant) is considered the number one barrister by his peers; he has a perfect track record, never loses a case. Maggie Gardner (Sophie Okonedo), the number 2 barrister, resents him. She resents Burton even more when he is under the spotlight yet again when he successfully gets a sociopath called Liam Foyle (Toby Kebell) freed on a technicality. Liam...

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Premise, But Daft Actions Ruins It, For Me
Tennet does his job of providing suspects with their best legal defense very well; he's an impressive 100% record. His latest client is accused of a particularly nasty crime.

Dramatic events unfold to place him somewhat at the other end of the process he normally works on. Its hard hitting, the acting and film quality is good as is the build up with some...

An absolute thriller! Will have you hooked from the start to the finish. Lots of twists and turns throughout. Cannot fault the acting from all concerned.

I watched this series on DVD as it hasn't been released in Australia as yet. I bought it as it has one of my favourite actors in it and I'd heard it was good. It was a spine tinglingly, well written story and extremely well acted by all of the cast however after watching The Escape Artist today I'm considering getting extra security and a Rottweiler. There is no story more frightening (for me) than something that could actually happen and this was a very plausible plot performed by extremely believable actors playing normal people who could be under certain circumstances be calculating murderers or stalked victims. Don't bother knocking on our door today or I'll be hiding behind it with a baseball bat....

What a great story. We watched it on TV and the ending is brilliant and so unexpected that we were gob smacked. We thought it was so good we have bought it for our son and daughter-in-law who missed it on TV. Recommend it if you like a twist in the tail.

Scary, though when you think what he got away with. The shocking twist came early but it all made sense.

Funny, touching and very very dark drama. This is what David Tennant does so well. This drama twists & turns right til the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Escape Artist [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
David Tennant is amazing and he was especially in this part as he was like fire and ice (pardon the pun) but he played the main role as brilliantly as he does all his roles. You really start to fell sorry for him and parts of it are very on the edge of your seat tense. I highly recommend this whether you have seen it on TV or not.
