After a botched capture and playout on both M-Net (DStv 101) and MultiChoice's DStv Catch Up service that kept embarrassing both M-Net and MultiChoice with every week's bizarrely shown episode, The Capture is getting another chance on Showmax.
Following a disastrous and utterly confusing run on M-Net and DStv Catch Up where mixed-up episodes from two different versions of The Capture got mangled much to DStv subscribers' frustration, the British crime thriller is now getting another chance on Showmax.
The 6-episode series is now available on Showmax.
On Wednesday Showmax was asked for any comment as to whether it is sure that its version of The Capture is correct and free from the mistake-riddled "versions" that marred the M-Net and DStv Catch Up run, but the video streaming service declined to comment.
This modern-day conspiracy thriller stars Holliday Grainger, Ron Perlman and Famke Janssen, with Callum Turner in the role of former Special Forces Lance Corporal Shaun Emery, who’s accused of assaulting and kidnapping human rights barrister Hannah Roberts.
There exists CCTV footage to prove the crime but as Detective Inspector Rachel Carey of Homicide and Serious Crime Command digs deeper, she begins to uncover a conspiracy that calls everything about the case into question.
