Criminal Justice will be gripping

According to the Mirror, Maxine Peake is utterly brilliant in this Autumn's Criminal Justice.

"The Shameless star plays depressed, middle-class housewife Juliet who finds herself in hot water after her barrister husband (Matthew Macfadyen) turns up a bit dead.

Just like last year, the drama will be screened on five consecutive weeknights in the autumn.

My source reveals: "The story is utterly gripping. You want to believe that she didn't do it but the problem is... maybe she did.""

Thank you Matthieu for sharing the article!
