A truly great adaptation of the book
7 September 2002 | by georgigemsSee all my reviews

This is one of the best adaptations of PD James' novels in the Adam Dalgliesh series. It follows the book very closely except for the character of Octavia's father who is just mentioned in the movie. "A Certain Justice" is one of Baroness James' best works. The story is about the murder of Venetia Aldridge, a QC (Queen's Council) in a London "Chambers" and a very ambitious barrister who has a track record of winning her cases. She doesn't necessarily prove that her clients are innocent, she simply disproves the prosecution's case against them. In the course of her career ,she has made enemies and one of them kills her and she is found in a very ritualistic setting. She has a daughter who has little use for her and who is a total thorn in her side. When Octavia gets involved with a psycho that Venetia has just gotten off for murder it is the last straw for her.There are several sub plots that all come together in the end. And as Adam Dalgliesh, Roy Marsden is a little older (of course he has played AD for 15 years) but still fabulous. He keeps me spellbound every time he enters a scene. I could not picture anyone else playing Commander D. I highly recommend this video even if you have not read the book. It is truly first rate.
