If you've already devoured all six episodes of Anatomy of a Scandal, and shopped Sienna's amazing wardrobe from the show, we've got some bonus content for you: a special video where the main cast - Sienna Miller, Rupert Friend, Michelle Dockery, Naomi Scott, Josette Simon - discuss some of the key themes that the show explores.

Based on the novel of the same name by Sarah Vaughan, the story focusses on James Whitehouse (Friend), a charismatic government minister living an enviably perfect life with his beautiful wife Sophie (Miller) and their two children. Their world is shattered when a member of James' staff, Olivia Lytton (Scott), accuses him of rape. Kate Woodcroft (Dockery) is the barrister prosecuting the case in the high-profile court case that ensues - going up against defence barrister Angel Regan (Simon). Kate is determined that justice is served - but she has ulterior motives of her own.

Exploring the thorny issues of consent and privilege, there are some surprising twists along the way, and many thought-provoking moments that have sparked heated debates. Here, the cast sit down to reflect on the themes and questions that Anatomy of a Scandal raises, which you can watch below:
