An intriguing real life crime brought to life in a fairly sober way.
2 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

Robert Morley CBE opens proceedings for the first of Granada's dramatisations of cases involving significant murders by women. The first sees the case of Marguerite Fahmy (Alibert) who went to trial for shooting her husband in the Savoy Hotel, London. Marie claimed after marrying her husband and converting to the Muslim faith, her husband treated her as a virtual prisoner. Marie would later inherit significantly.

The episode wins plaudits for choice of material, it remains an intriguing case, one of historical interest. I would say it was a solid opening episode, I was a little disappointed not to get a more active drama, instead it's straight into a courtroom for proceedings. The highlight has to be Robert Stephens, who brought Sir Edward Marshall Hall, K.C. to life particularly well, the acting is fair, possibly a little stiff at times. Barbara Kellerman certainly looked the part of Madame Marie Fahmy.

I genuinely think that 1980 Brits thought all foreigners were excitable, you see it in so many shows from the time.

An interesting, if not intriguing watch.
