Standing up for the rights of Synths is no easy task for lawyer Laura Hawkins
(Katherine Parkinson).

She faces abuse and intimidation and when she reluctantly joins the Dryden Commission – set up to establish what should be done with Synths – it’s an uphill struggle trying to get her point of view across.

But could Laura have an ally in one fellow commission member, behavioural scientist Dr Neil Sommer (Apple Tree Yard’s Mark Bonnar)?

Meanwhile, Mia and Niska go to the rescue of four Synths, in hiding after their attempt to cross the Channel to safety ended in disaster, and Joe thinks he spots a familiar face.
