The Accident - Jade Croot

In the final episode of Jack Thorne’s drama about the fallout of an industrial accident, Harriet (Sidse Babbett Knudsen) is in the dock for gross negligence manslaughter as the families’ private prosecution finally arrives in court.

Angela (Joanna Scanlan) and the others have nearly bankrupted themselves to fund the case and Polly (Sarah Lancashire) fears for Leona (Jade Croot), who wants to give evidence, but it’s her relationship with Iwan (Mark Lewis Jones) that presents her with the most challenging questions.

The Accident – Thursday at 9.00pm on Channel 4.
