Based on the fight for Stephen Downing's release from prison after being wrongly convicted for the 1973 murder of Wendy Sewell, and his subsequent acquittal in 2001, this true dramatisation "In Denial of Murder" was a good idea, but was transformed into a wishy-washy soapy splurge.
Bad casting, bad direction, indifferent acting, a sketchy script and irritating flashbacks made it into a flat and utterly tedious non-event.
