Undeniable

Series 1 - Episode 2

Review

Undeniable is one of those brisk and efficient two-part thrillers that ITV does so well. It doesn’t ask much of its audience, we don’t have to hang around long enough to become too involved with the characters, and the story is focused and to-the-point. So, after a pair of episodes, job done, as they say.

Even if you make a good guess as to where it will end up, it’s worth seeing things through. Traumatised young mother Jane Phillips is starting to unravel. She thinks she’s recognised the man who murdered her mother in front of her when she was a child.

She’s accused respectable oncologist Andrew Rawlins (Peter Firth) of the crime, which is surely unthinkable as he’s a pillar of the community. It’s all terribly contrived, but the performances, particularly from Goose, Firth and Pippa Haywood as a determined cop, are strong.

Summary

Conclusion. In spite of Andrew's DNA test results establishing his innocence, Jane remains convinced she is right and her determination to prove his guilt becomes increasingly irrational and obsessive. Her life unravelling, it seems all hope is lost when her ally, Detective Ali Hall, is relieved of the investigation. However, a confrontation with the oncologist's daughter Emma hardens Jane's resolve and triggers a series of consequences that neither of them could have foreseen. Drama, starring Claire Goose and Peter Firth, with Felix Scott, Christine Bottomley, Pippa Haywood and Robert Pugh.
