Not so much "Above Suspicion" as "Beneath Contempt"
12 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I gave it a chance, I really did, but La Plante's latest was as plodding as a flat-footed policeman.

This was a strictly by-the-numbers "thriller" that offered no thrills and little in the way of decent acting. Even the normally excellent Sylvia Syms was relegated to the role of a forelock-tugging housekeeper who may, or may not, have been involved in the case's frankly ludicrous conclusion.

As others have said, Ciarán Hinds was channeling the ghost of Jack Regan in his portrayal of the no-nonsense old-fashioned copper, even down to getting the women in the office to fetch his coffee and bacon sandwiches.

Female lead Kelly Reilly lacked the acting ability the role required, delivering her lines with all the passion of a sat nav while, as the prime suspect, Simon Williams wore out his dentures chewing the scenery.

Unfortunately, not even the excellent murder victim special effects could save the viewer from three turgid hours of this drivel. If anyone else had written this, it would never have been made, so I can only assume that La Plante used up one of her three lifelines to get this on prime time ITV.
