“Series two of The Capture will again question if we can really believe what we see. Britain is under siege: hacked news feeds, manipulated media, and interference in politics. Entrenched in the UK’s own ‘Correction’ unit, DCI Rachel Carey finds herself in the middle of a new conspiracy – with a new target. But how can she solve this case when she can’t even trust her closest colleagues? Escalating from the CCTV thriller of series one, the six-part run features ‘invisible’ assassins, the terrifying rise of deepfake technology, the ever-growing tension between government and Big Tech, and corruption at the heart of the British media.”

Other details

The Capture was the most requested new show in 2019 on BBC iPlayer, with over 20 million requests for series 1. It was also the eighth most requested series overall in 2019.


The new series continues with Detective Rachel Carey tackling her latest case, which once again revolves around the mysterious Correction—an organization with the ability to tamper with photo and video evidence.

This time, security minister Isaac Turner’s promising career is jeopardized when an uncannily convincing deepfake version of him starts spreading damaging disinformation, resulting in a scandal.
