FIRST LOOK The Capture 2

11 new images have been released ahead of the second series of thriller The Capture launching on BBC One this August.

These new images give viewers their first glimpse at Holliday Grainger who returns as DCI Rachel Carey, Paapa Essiedu who joins as Isaac Turner MP, a young rising star politician with ambitions for the very top and Indira Varma as Newsnight presenter Khadija Khan.

Written and created by Ben Chanan, the next instalment of The Capture will again question if we can really believe what we see.

Britain is under siege: hacked news feeds, manipulated media, and interference in politics. Entrenched in the UK’s own ‘Correction’ unit, DCI Rachel Carey finds herself in the middle of a new conspiracy and with a new target.

But how can she solve this case when she can’t even trust her closest colleagues?

Escalating from the CCTV thriller of series one, the six-part run features 'invisible' assassins, the terrifying rise of deep fake technology, the ever-growing tension between government and Big Tech, and corruption at the heart of the British media.

Starring alongside Holliday Grainger, Paapa Essiedu and Indira Varma are returning actors Ron Perlman, Ben Miles, Lia Williams, Cavan Clerkin, Ginny Holder and Nigel Lindsay. With Andy Nyman, Charlie Murphy and Rob Yang joining The Capture for series two.

The new series is directed by James Kent and Philippa Langdale and produced by Kristian Dench. Executive producers are Ben Chanan and Derek Ritchie alongside David Heyman and Rosie Alison for Heyday Television, Tom Coan for Universal International Studios, Tom Winchester, Ben Irving and Rebecca Ferguson for the BBC.

The Capture returns Sunday 28th August at 9pm on BBC One
