There’s a touch of the Thomas Hardy bad-boy about Lee Ashworth, who might or might not be a murderer. He does a lot of moody standing around on verdant hillsides, framed in the golden light of a fuzzy Dorset sun. Mind you, I don’t think many of Hardy’s ne’er-do-wells wore tight-fitting vests.
We’ve already seen the sexual power Lee (James D’Arcy) wields over his seemingly helpless wife Claire (Eve Myles), so it’s not too long before his presence in
becomes a cause célèbre.
Though the courtroom scenes sometimes feel superfluous, irrelevant even, it’s still a thumpingly good episode, full of shocks and surprises, one that will leave you giddy with guessing as you wonder just who DID kill that young woman and probably a child in Sandbrook all of those years ago? Ailing, jittery, pasty-faced Alec Hardy (David Tennant) takes Ellie (Olivia Colman) with him as he revisits the scene of his greatest failure.
Hardy faced a race against time as Ellie discovered a startling new piece of evidence, forcing them to reassess their suspicions. Miller is struggling to control her sister Lucy amid family tensions, Alec must confront his demons, and Mark Latimer has to make a decision. David Tennant, Olivia Colman and Andrew Buchan star.
