Not CSI and not close, 21 January 2011
Author: pensman from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The problem with this episode, if not the series, is that the police have decided who is guilty and stop looking for potential subjects. As the story of the murdered girl unfolds there is the possibility her mother's live in boy friend did it; there is a slightly older brother who disliked his sister and seemingly resented her; and there is the mother who knows there is evidence that could make the abusive live in look quite guilty but she is not forthcoming regarding it. And then there is a jury trial that finds the suspect guilty on nothing but circumstantial evidence. The real mystery for me is how this series lasted as long as it did. Maybe it's a British thing but this show is not in the same class as Midsommer Murders or A Touch of Frost. I say pass.
