Emmy Griffiths

BBC's new crime series, The Capture, has been keeping viewers on tenterhooks thanks to its mindboggling storyline about a crime caught on CCTV that might not have even happened. The fourth episode of the popular drama will air on BBC One on Tuesday at 9pm, so find out everything you need to know about the brilliant cast here…

Holliday Grainger – Rachel Carey

As a detective inspector who quickly built a career for herself in Counter Terrorism, Rachel's move to the homicide department seems like a doddle – until her first case becomes more complicated than she could ever have imagined. Holliday isn't a stranger to BBC dramas, as she also plays budding private investigator Robin Ellacott in the popular JK Rowling adaptation Strike. She is also well known for her roles as Lucrezia in The Borgias, Anastasia in Cinderella and Lady Chatterley in Lady Chatterley's Lover.
