BBC The Capture series 2: how to watch and cast
BBC’s best new title of 2019 returns for another blood-pumping series.
The blood-pumping BBC-One drama show, The Capture, returned to screens at the end of August, offering another round of “fakery and disinformation”, according to series creator and writer Ben Chanan.
Holiday Grainger is back as the hard-hitting detective, DCI Rachel Carey, this time focusing on rising politician Isaac Turner and the twisted world of modern technology.
Here’s everything you need to know about The Capture, season two.
The Capture series one Recap
According to IMDB, The Capture Season One “follows a British soldier who is charged with a crime” that starts to unravel as a “tenacious young detective handling his case begins to uncover a multi-layered conspiracy”.
Shaun Emery, an ex-soldier, is freed from a murder conviction in Afghanistan due to flawed video evidence. However, CCTV footage from a night out in London appears and Shaun must fight for his innocence yet again.
What is the synopsis for The Capture series two?
The official synopsis for the new season reads: “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 – 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 deepfake technology, the ever-growing tension between government and Big Tech, and corruption at the heart of the British media.”
