Masterpiece Episode: "The Murder of Stephen Lawrence"

Season 31, Episode 8
Episode Synopsis: "The Murder of Stephen Lawrence" charts a Jamaican immigrant couple's five-year battle for justice in the face of what they see as institutional racism in Britain's judicial system. Hugh Quarshie and Marianne Jean-Baptiste star as Neville and Doreen Lawrence, whose 18-year-old son Stephen was stabbed to death in April 1993 while waiting for a bus in southeast London. The assailants, five white-supremacist teens, are identified immediately, but the police don't arrest them for two weeks.
