Very disappointing
12 November 2011 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This moves at the speed of a constipated glacier, especially the first episode. ITV decided to split it over five nights, but only had enough material for two or three, so it had to be spun out. I can't believe I watched it to the end. Memo to self: get a life.

It's difficult to write about the crazily unlikely plot, and its holes, without giving away spoilers, but I think I am safe in asking why no forensic or DNA evidence was ever mentioned in the courtroom. Surely this would have established whether the defendant had contact with the murdered women or not? Of course, any firm scientific evidence would have done away with most of the agonised discussions among the jury members and also ruined the contrived plot twist at the end.

Steven Mackintosh was good, as was Jodhi May. Roger Allam and Julie Walters as the barristers were very watchable but not really stretched. The series came to life a bit in their courtroom scenes.

The previous series (of ten years ago) was recently repeated as a curtain-raiser for this one. That's the one to see, if you can.
