There’s a devilish dose of uncertainty at the heart of this gripping new thriller that is cunningly designed to keep you watching right until the end of the four parts showing over consecutive nights.
David (Lee Ingleby) has been in jail for seven years for the murder of his wife, Tara, until he’s freed by an appeal court, and emerges vowing both to hold the police to account for the injustice he’s suffered and to ensure that the real killer is found. But neither the investigating police officer nor Tara’s sister Alice (Hermione Norris, above with Ingleby) – who has been raising David’s children as if they were her own since he was jailed – have any doubts over the original conviction.
You’ll be scratching your head wondering who to believe, particularly thanks to a masterfully hard to read performance by Ingleby. Watch carefully and you’ll spot some telling clues that might just provide the crucial answers.
