Masterpiece Episode: "The Jury"

Season 32, Episode 16
Episode Synopsis: “The Jury.” In Part 1 of this four-part drama, 12 men and women deliberate on the fate of a Sikh teenager accused of killing a schoolmate while they wrestle with their own problems when they're not in London's Old Bailey courthouse (where parts of the drama were filmed). Circumstantial evidence in the case is damning, so the defense counsel (Derek Jacobi) has his work cut out for him. Meanwhile, the victim's roughneck brothers are certain that the defendant is guilty, and they let one juror (Nina Sosanya) know it in a very threatening manner.
