Miniseries: Apple Tree Yard
Easy viewing? No way, but Apple Tree Yard is gripping and brilliantly acted. If you thought the first three parts were intense, tonight’s emotional season finale might have you reaching for a stiff drink. Believability and plot holes aside, the scenes that take place in the courtroom tonight lavishly lay on the melodrama. The murder trial continues, with Costley’s (Ben Chaplin) lawyer Bonnard (Lydia Leonard) basing her defence on evidence that Costley suffers from a personality disorder which would have impeded his ability to react normally.
