Here’s everything you need to know.

What’s the plot of You Don’t Know Me?

The new series focuses on a young man who stands accused of murder. All the evidence points to him and the police see an open and shut case, but the man mounts a passionate defence and takes his fate into his own hands.

He attempts to claim his innocence by arguing that the murder is linked to a mysterious woman he met on a bus two years previously, but who later went missing.

The synopsis reads: ‘A young man from London stands in court, accused of murder. Despite the overwhelming evidence against him, he swears he’s innocent. But in the end, all that matters is… does the jury believe him?’
