Created by Anthony Horowitz (Foyle’s War, Midsomer Murders), Injustice,
debuts on DVD from Acorn Media on August 28, 2012; offering a tale of murder, conspiracy, secrets, and guilt. James Purefoy (Rome, Episodes, and opposite Kevin Bacon on FOX’s forthcoming series The Following) leads a distinguished cast featuring Dervla Kirwan (Ballykissangel), Charlie Creed-Miles (Five Days), and Nathaniel Parker (The Inspector Lynley Mysteries) in this taut five-part thriller that merges legal drama, police investigation, and high-tension suspense in an atmosphere of moral ambiguity.
Purefoy plays defense barrister William Travers, a successful barrister with a dark past. Hew has left behind the London murder trials for the relative peace of the Suffolk countryside, taking his family, including wife Devla Kirwan – a former literary commissioning editor now working part time as an English teacher in a young offenders’ institution and thoroughly unhappy about having to live the rural life. Once a high-flying prosecutor in London, one murder trial that went wrong eventually gave Travers a nervous breakdown. When he is called upon to defend an old friend in a homicide that may be much more convoluted than it seems, suddenly the Travers family finds death striking very close to home and Travers himself becomes the target of an investigation.
Acorn media has imported some of the best in British television, and James Purefoy’s Injustice is certainly to be counted among the best.
Besides Foyle’s War, BAFTA-nominated screenwriter Anthony Horowitz’s other credits include Collison, Agatha Christie’s Poirot, Midsomer Murders, and Robin of Sherwood. He also wrote the most recent Sherlock Holmes novel, The House of Silk and the hit Alex Rider book series.
