This TV play was billed as a vehicle for Julie Walters, playing an alcoholic, convicted murderess whose discoveries, after her release, cause her to doubt that she really murdered her husband. And, to be fair, Julie Walters is very good, struggling with her alcoholism and trying to rebuild her life with friends and family. But the plot is feeble, packed with red herrings, and the supporting actors are no more than caricatures, struggling to convince as the story limps from crisis to crisis, to fill the allotted two hours. A very disappointing play and a waste of Julie Walters' considerable talents.
