Storyline

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?

Trivia

Considering that the entire story never leaves the UK, it may seem that it was an odd production decision to use the UK for the exterior coastal landscape scenes, and use the areas around Malahide and Dublin city for the buildings' interiors and exteriors, however, the series was shot in the Republic of Ireland, as the Government has various tax incentives to lower the cost of certain film and television productions budgets. Hence the end title credit stating "Produced with the support of incentives for the Irish Film Industry provided by the Government of Ireland." This is also why the production crew has many obviously Irish names. See more »

Well worth a watch
6 February 2018 | by warrennatalieolsonSee all my reviews

Innocent was shown here (NZ) as a TV mini-series - From the start we are more-or-less assured that David Collins has been falsley incarcerated for 7 years ; accused of his wifes murder. Red herrings are scatterred near and far during the four 1 hour episodes of this well acted drama. There were one or two minor points that could have ben better developed, the baised and mis-placed one eyed opinion of the initial investigator for one. Finally with yet another plot twist all is resolved, but after all the intricacies introduced during the build up I did feel things ended a little too sudden/conveniently which resulted in an 8 rather than a 10 out of 10 for this entertaining whodunnit.
