Having seen the advert for BBC One’s new Sunday night drama, it is clear that this is one to watch!
The six-part drama focuses on the life of Maya, a passionate barrister who is just about to become the first black Director of Public Prosecutions. She focuses on a case involving a death in custody but her personal life begins to unravel as she discovers her husband, and father of her children, is actually an undercover police officer who is spying on her due to her interest in the case.
With programmes like Making a Murder and The People V. OJ Simpson becoming increasingly popular, the public is becoming more aware of the corruption that, unfortunately, can lie within public authorities. Often people who have been affected do not know where to turn, and do not know their rights.
Undercover promises to bring challenging and controversial issues that globally impact society into the limelight.
Whilst this programme is fictional, sadly, too many people have been affected by similar issues. No matter how grave the injustice, it can be difficult to ‘take on’ resourceful public authorities.
At Southerns, OUR SPECIAL INQUEST DEPARTMENT have a wealth of experience representing the interests of families affected by a death in custody or other detention. We understand how traumatic the experience can be and will do everything we can to guide you through the Inquest process and get the answers you deserve.
We also have a dedicated ACTIONS AGAINST THE POLICE DEPARTMENT who are skilled in bringing claims against the police and other public authorities where they have acted inappropriately.
