Mr Bates vs. The Post Office

Directed by the UK’s James Strong and written by British screenwriter Gwyneth Hughes, this rousing four-part mini-series is based on the true story of a devastating national scandal in Britain. With an outstanding UK ensemble cast including Toby Jones, Monica Dolan, Will Mellor, Shaun Dooley, Ian Hart and Lia Williams, the drama was co-produced by ITV Studios and Little Gem.





Over two decades, Alan Bates (Toby Jones) becomes a determined organiser for those affected by Britain’s Post Office scandal, in which hundreds of innocent post office workers were erroneously accused of wrongdoing by a faulty IT system.
