Good but medically inaccurate--writer fail
7 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A rehash of an old Law & Order episode in the US (not sure if SVU or not), decently done. Several of the UK episodes have been remakes of the US episodes, but that's OK...the laws sometimes differ slightly, and it's fun watching these actors handle the cases anyway, especially when there are some cultural differences. However, I despise when writers pull some "latest development" news from the headlines (in this case, a single 4-year-old medical study in Australia, as far as I could find with a quick Internet search) and base the entire impetus for the episode on it. "you gave me herpes, that's why our son has cerebral palsy, I hate you" as a motive doesn't work so well when the herpes group A(alpha) viruses are the ones most people and prostitutes have (commonly "cold sores," genital herpes) and they showed zero correlation to cerebral palsy--it's the B (beta) group that has the CP correlation, which would be highly unlikely to appear in an eastern European prostitute living in England unless one of her Johns was a vet who worked with monkeys--group B is not typical "herpes," basically. However, there was some correlation to preterm births, so it would have made more sense for the kid to have a disease that could be caused by premature birth! Now of course everyone will be terrified they will have a CP kid just because they're one of the 80%+ people out there with herpes type I or II, the group A types. Not to mention that one study is not considered proof in the scientific community...maybe more studies have been done, but they don't pop up in a quick search.
