Meet the young cast of The Capture: The BBC’s new conspiracy thriller

It’s Alison from The Inbetweeners!!!!


The Capture is the new BBC thriller everyone is talking about. The new series started last night and the nation is hooked. Maybe it's because the show is a Big Brother style look at surveillance and CCTV, or maybe it's because The Capture cast are mostly cool and young? Who knows.

The Capture is all about the "post-truth" era, looking into the effect of fake news and the extraordinary capabilities of the intelligence services. The drama shows that in an ever-changing world where the truth can be easily be distorted, it is hard to know what to believe.
