Storyline

Kavanagh defends Annie Lewis, a high class prostitute accused of killing an entrepreneur who had a reputation for being a risk-taker and who regularly enjoyed the company of paid escorts. Annie claims she is innocent and refuses a plea bargain offered by the prosecution. The defense challenges the testimony of witnesses who claim to have seen her leaving the hotel just prior to the murder, though she claims to have left several hours before. On the home front, Kavanagh is concerned about the future of his marriage when he learns Lizzie may get a senior level civil service appointment in Strasbourg and daughter Kate, who is about to leave for university, is having boyfriend problems. In Chambers, Jeremy is at his chauvinistic best when he initially refuses Julia's request to play in the annual cricket match. Written by garykmcd

"She's lying" "Your word against hers"
16 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Personally I think this episode is my personal favourite of the first series. While the identity of the murderer is seemingly ambiguous, then again I need to see this episode again, it is a fine episode with good writing and acting. The title of my review is the line from the script that stuck with me after watching, there is something very foreboding about it. The story about a prostitute accused of killing an entrepreneur is well constructed and has some very compelling courtroom scenes to boot and a charming cricket match scene. Once again the acting is top drawer with John Thaw excellent as always, Anastasia Hille an alluring and somewhat mysterious defendant, Jesse Birdsall as Des and Lisa Harrow looking beautiful here. Plus Tony Haygarth is good with the screen time he has as the victim Patrick Hutton. Also good are the camera work, which is fluid and beautiful and the music which has one of the most hauntingly poignant piano themes I've heard. Overall, my personal favourite episode of the 1st series. 9/10 Bethany Cox
