Review

Undeniable is a straightforward psychological thriller, containing elements that are so familiar you’ll sigh out loud – notably the committed cop on the brink of redundancy having one last crack at the unsolved case that’s haunted her career. But it’s still enormously satisfying.

Claire Goose is Jane Philips, who’s happily married with a young daughter. But when she was only seven Jane witnessed her mother’s murder by a stranger, a man who was never caught. Ever since, she’s battled with a legacy of deep emotional problems.

But now, 23 years on, Jane sees the man she’s convinced killed her mother, a respectable medic, Andrew Rawlins (Peter Firth). She’s implacable and deaf to pleas from her family to leave well alone. Luckily she has an ally, Det Insp Alison Hall (Pippa Haywood), the original investigator.

Chris Lang’s story makes no bones about making us take sides, which might not be subtle, but it’s gripping.

Summary

Part one of two. Jane Phillips was just a young child when she witnessed her mother's murder and the traumatic incident has haunted her ever since. Twenty-three years later, she comes face to face with the man she believes is the killer - eminent oncologist Andrew Rawlins - and sets out to bring him to justice. However, having wrongly identified others in the past, is she about to destroy an innocent person's life? As inquiries proceed, inconsistencies emerge in both their testimonies and the suspect reluctantly submits to a blood test, which the original investigating officer believes will prove his guilt. Drama, starring Claire Goose and Peter Firth, with Felix Scott, Christine Bottomley, Pippa Haywood and Robert Pugh.
