Premiering on Apple TV+ in January, this eight-episode crime thriller revolves around an old murder case that may have resulted in the imprisonment of an innocent man.
Cush Jumbo (The Good Fight) plays DS June Lenker opposite Capaldi's seasoned DCI Daniel Hegarty, while Zoë Wanamaker (Harry Potter), Stephen Campbell Moore (War of the Worlds), Shaun Dooley (Black Mirror), and Charlie Creed-Miles (Peaky Blinders) co-star.

The footage itself teases a face-off between Hegarty and Lenker, with Lenker investigating a mysterious tip-off that one of Hegarty's prior assignments was faulty.
"That case was investigated fairly!" stresses Hegarty, confirming that the inmate confessed to the killing.
With the bit between her teeth, though, Lenker goes digging for more on Hegarty's work.
"Let it go, Dan is one of the good ones," she's told.
An official synopsis for the show reads: "Criminal Record is a powerful, character-driven drama set in the heart of contemporary London. An anonymous phone call draws two brilliant detectives into a confrontation over an old murder case – one a young woman in the early stages of her career, the other a well-connected man determined to protect his legacy.
"The series touches on issues of race, institutional failure and the quest to find common ground in a polarised Britain."
Criminal Record premieres January 10 on Apple TV+.
