Tim Roth: Dr. Cal Lightman
Lightman is asked to try and break a copycat rapist / murderer case but his opponent seems rather more adept at lie detection and manipulation than he is.
An episode about power and how to take it from someone who has it. It looks like Lightman has met his match and, although we know he’s the hero and this can’t possibly be, the villain is clearly causing Lightman to work really really hard for his goal. Despite the subject (serial rapist / murderer) this is good fun because it concentrates on the mind-games.
This Lie To Me episode contains adult dialogue and extremely unpleasant scenes, extreme melee violence.
