Detectives clash in Criminal Record on Apple TV+
Criminal Record is a character-driven thriller set in contemporary London, with detectives in a tug-of-war over a murder conviction.
Apple’s synopsis says:
“An anonymous phone call draws two brilliant detectives into a confrontation over an old murder case — one a young woman in the early stages of her career, the other a well-connected man determined to protect his legacy. “
Apple also said “the series touches on issues of race, institutional failure, and the quest to find common ground in a polarized Britain.”
