After seven years in a high security prison, David Collins' conviction for the murder of his wife, Tara, is overturned due to a technicality, or as his lawyer puts it, an appalling miscarriage of justice. Able to start his life again and begin to repair relationships with his family and friends, David hopes to finally be allowed to mourn his wife's death. As a new investigation is launched, headed by DI Cathy Hudson, dark secrets of abuse, affairs and money troubles rise to the surface. From jealous sisters to disgruntled lovers, these secrets rip fragile relationships apart at the seams. But one question remains: is David Collins truly innocent?

Did You Know?


Many of the fictionalised building locations were actually real world locations in Dublin and Malahide, in Ireland. Meaning that many of the Irish viewers easily re-located the series to being set in that part of Ireland. For example, the fictional police station location set "in the UK", was actually the Park House office building, owned by the DIT/Technological University Dublin, north of their main campus site, on North Circular Road, in Dublin 7, in Ireland. A later scene of 2 people in a (UK) police car parked outside the "police station" clearly shows the distinct architecture of the other street-facing side of the Park House building, with the front through the car windows corresponding to the view opposite that side of Park House.

Great drama
18 May 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Innocent has been well worth watching. A four part story that takes you on a journey of crime, its impact on the guilty, and the innocent. Emotionally charged throughout, it was gripping, engaging and thought provoking. Clues are drip fed through, with the solution delivered late in the day, you're led up several blind alleys, and keep wondering if he's guilty or innocent.

Very well acted, Lee Ingleby is superb, as are Hermione Norris and Adrian Rawlins. How nice to have a drama transmitted over four consecutive nights, the way people view has changed, I'm certainly a binge watcher, this suited me.

I did guess the outcome in episode 1, that's my only criticism, some actors and actresses are type cast in certain roles, this was unfortunately the case. Didn't detract from the enjoyment though.

First class drama, 9/10
