From the production company that brought us Sunday night thrillers Vigil and Line of Duty comes Showtrial (BBC One), the latest twisty drama intent on antagonising its audience before bedtime. When industrious working-class student Hannah Ellis (Abra Thompson) disappears after a college ball, the police target her classmate. This is the popular and entitled Talitha Campbell (Céline Buckens), daughter of a wealthy property developer.
