Masterpiece Contemporary features dramas set in modern times. One such drama is Collision, the story of a major road accident and the 10 seemingly disconnected people involved. Beyond the chaotic landscape of corpses and crumpled cars, a series of invisible dramas unfold – from government cover-ups to torn relationships and murder.
Another highlight of the series is The Last Enemy, a visionary thriller about a man whose search for the truth about his brother's death catapults him into an international conspiracy and a passionate love affair. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement, Spooks), The Last Enemy takes a compelling look at technology's potential to transform Britain into a surveillance society — threatening human relationships and destroying trust.
