    Summary of Accused Season 1 DVD Boxset

    Rob Ryland (Joseph Phillips) and Michael Lang (Alfie Allen) start a new job temping at a local factory, they don't listen to the health and safety talk and Rob ends up being killed in an incident with a forklift truck. The police arrive at the house of Rob's parents, Helen (Juliet Stevenson) and Frank (Peter Capaldi), and tell them of the accident. Helen pursues the company that hired Rob to find the full details of his death and they fob her off with a story, but unsatisfied with the story and with the fact the factory has no CCTV for the day of Rob's death, she seeks legal action. Michael later reveals to Helen, after being persuaded by his girlfriend (Tina O'Brien), that the health and safety talk they were given was substandard and also that the factory has given him a full time job to buy his silence around the details of Rob's death. At the inquest into Rob's death, the coroner found the death to be accidental, so, angered, Helen breaks into the factory using Rob's ID and pleads with the manager (Peter Wight) to accept responsibility for Rob but he doesn't and so she sets fire to the factory. Helen is arrested on a charge of arson, during her trial Frank barges in dressed as a clown and confessed his contempt for the legal system. At the end of her trial, Helen is found not guilty.
