Junior Crown Prosecutor Alesha Phillips

Freema Agyeman plays Crown Prosecutor Alesha Phillips. Intelligent and confident, Alesha worked hard and overcame many roadblocks to get to her present position and she remains on the side of the underdog. In Season 3, Alesha experiences a change of both partner and boss, and the prosecution team gains a new dynamic. Having recently played Martha Jones on “Doctor Who,” Agyeman says she was “over the moon” when she heard Fifth Doctor Peter Davison would be joining the cast as Alesha’s new boss, Henry Sharpe.
