Silk episode 4 will air Tuesday 5 June on BBC One at 9pm; in which we get our first look at Endeavour star Shaun Evans.
Martha finds herself in a David and Goliath battle, representing the driver of a high security prison van.
When a group of prisoners escape from his van, Michael Ward opens the doors to find another, younger prisoner dead – and he and his firm are held to be responsible. Working alongside his company’s legal team, Martha is incensed to discover that they have no intention of supporting her client. Unless he starts standing up for himself it looks like Ward will become the fall guy.
Chambers take on a new pupil, Daniel Lomas, who helps Martha to get through to her client. Meanwhile Clive is struggling to get through to Fatima Ali, who has convinced herself that she’s responsible for the death of her brother. Billy, still feeling the pressure from Micky Joy, investigates Caroline Warwick and starts to uncover hidden truths.
