4.0 out of 5 stars Tennant's Extra . . ., 17 Nov. 2013
This review is from: The Escape Artist [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
. . . good

Since leaving the TARDIS behind it seems Mr Tennant can do no wrong and can obviously sniff out a winning script a mile away. Choosing to watch this on that basis alone, I was not disappointed as the ex-Time Lord delivered another master class in a tense and classy thriller.

Without a padlock or water tank in sight, Will Burton (Tennant) was a high flying junior barrister of great talent and destined for great things. He had yet to lose a case, hence his moniker and his last case was a mere formality when a sadistic killer walked free on the first day of his Old Bailey trial thanks to his tactics. Choosing not to shake his client's hand afterwards however had more ramifications for the legal egghead than Suarez not doing the same with Patrice Evra. Liam Foyle had killed before and would kill again and it wasn't long before Burton found himself a witness to a murder and not defending one....

I loved this drama, it had pace and intrigue but also its fair share of confusion and the endgame was more than a bit contrived. Toby Kebbell convinced as the toothy and well spoken killer, a real life Sideshow Bob who's hatred of all people was very convincing and equally chilling. A Bond villain in the making if ever there was one but how he could afford London's finest legal brains was beyond me - but that's one for anther day. Of course fresh back from the beaches at Broadchurch he was no match for our David. Or was he....?
