Red Dahlia- Unimaginative drama by La Plante
9 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Once again Linda La Plante's production company has churned out another of her novels and turned it into an ITV Drama. As Murder Dramas go, it is watchable, but it also filled with clichés and errors. For example, when friends of the first victim all say that she had taken to wearing a red rose in her hair, and there is no mention of a red dahlia, why does the character of Travis say, 'that's not a Dahlia, it's a red rose' when reading an article about the first murder? And later when the journalist mentions The Black Dahlia case, Travis replies- 'The Black What?'

The acting of both leads is quite wooden, with Reilly fluttering her eyelids and somehow making the same stupid mistakes all over again. I guess really it is down to having a bad script and some terrible actors. Langton is gruff and sometimes fatherly, but always a stereotype somehow.

Anyone watching La Plante's dramas will notice that she has once again used an already used plot (this time a real life murder). She did the same with her Trial and Retribution: Romeo and Juliet, where she stole the entire plot from the film The Vanishing. Basically she needs to come up with a few new ideas.

Basically, I do not recommend this drama.
