Go and take a bath instead
14 February 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs

Originally broadcast on New Years Eve,this true-life tale charts the account of the 1915 trial and execution of George Smith,played by Martin Kemp (Abbey National must have ran out of stuff to flog.)Smith murdered his three wives by drowning them in bathtubs in order to reap the financial benefits each respective one of them represented.

It starts off fairly interestingly,but for some totally weird,unexplainable reason,by the time the second half has come round,the script sort of malfunctions and it becomes weirdly uninteresting,leaving the viewer forced to suffer it through to the final hurdle.Or just switch it off.**
