Daniel Mays stars in this powerful dramatisation of the Montagu Trial one of the most sensational and controversial court cases of the 1950s and the catalyst for a campaign that paved the way for the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Britain.
Against the Law follows the affair between celebrated Fleet Street journalist Peter Wildeblood and serviceman Eddy McNally. The exposure of their relationship had devastating consequences, leading to public vilification and prison sentences for Wildeblood and his friends Michael Pitt-Rivers and Lord Montagu of Beaulieu. Enduring a year-long incarceration that involved attempts to alter his sexual orientation, Wildeblood emerged with a determination to challenge the draconian laws that shattered the lives of generations of gay men.
Also starring Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss, Charlie Creed-Miles and newcomer Richard Gadd, Against the Law is based on Wildeblood's best-selling autobiography, and scripted by BAFTA-nominated Brian Fillis.
