Minis­eries: Ap­ple Tree Yard

ABC, 8.30pm

The Gympie Times - - TV GUIDE -

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.

Fea­tures Emily Wat­son (pic­tured).
