Silk: Series 3, Episode 2 – Info & Pictures

Delving into the murky world of professional football, Martha (Maxine Peake) must put her feelings aside to defend a footballer accused of a pitch assault on another player.

Because the incident was witnessed by tens of thousands of football fans, it seems an impossible task.

Martha’s client is reluctant to cooperate and help his defence, so Martha must gain his trust to discover a secret he’s determined to keep hidden from the football world. Up against Clive (Rupert Penry-Jones) in court, can Martha convince her client to help himself?

Meanwhile, a resignation shocks chambers and Billy (Neil Stuke) begins to take steps to ensure the future of Shoe Lane, with or without him.
