Storyline

Helen Stephens is wrongly sentenced to 12 years in prison for murdering her boss Eric Bridges, the managing director of Entirely Tiles. Although she is sure that it will only be a matter of time before this mistake is rectified, everyone around her seems to be conspiring to keep her behind bars. Lawyer Tony is incompetent, sister Laura wants her flat, and fiancé Justin - her alibi - has disappeared. Colleague Henry seems to be the only one willing to help, but he has an ulterior motive.

Suspended sentence for great light entertainment
2 May 2018 | by zoe-76147See all my reviews

Just as you get to the peak point of the storyline the series is discontinued. Perhaps it was to test audiences for a second season. Whatever the reason it's left a deep frustration as I just discovered this series in 2018. Well written and casted. Some lovely touches to background scenes, especially in the visitors room. It has some great comedic moments. Very British stock characters and some colour by numbers makes for all ages light entertainment. Here's to a denoumont that sees Helens response...once she gets through the appeals process. I think there's still comedy gold to be had in this series.
