Collision is a five-part miniseries which debuted on ITV in 2009.

On the face of it, a major road accident is nothing more than a moment of total chaos bringing together a group of people who have never met before but who now share a defining moment that will change all their lives.

Beyond the crumpled cars and beleaguered emergency services are the invisible dramas and when DI John Tolin begins his investigation he finds himself drawn into many different and dangerous worlds including government cover-ups, smuggling, torn relationships and murder.

Collision features an ensemble cast including Douglas Henshall, Phil Davis, Jan Francis, Kate Ashfield, Claire Rushbrook, Paul McGann, David Bamber, Dean Lennox Kelly, Craig Kelly, Lucy Griffiths and Sylvia Syms.
