Four-part drama based on the true story of the police investigation into the poisoning of the former Russian spy, Alexander Litvinenko. In November 2006, Litvinenko, a former KGB officer, lies dying in a London hospital – poisoned by a mysterious radioactive substance. As police are summoned to take his statement, Litvinenko points his finger directly at the Russian President, Vladimir Putin. Litvinenko’s death a few days later sparks an investigation into a chemical attack on the streets of London and a ten-year investigation between Britain and Russia to find justice for his murder.

Litvinenko is sensitive and tactful, almost to a fault.
