The Case
Part 1 (of 5)
New issue-driven daytime drama, about the trial of a man who helped his lover commit suicide -- or did he just kill her?
It's quite good in places -- Dean Andrews' performance as the accused in particular, as well as Ruthie Henshall against type as a bitchy barrister -- but it's also very daytime. The direction, writing, editing, most performances… you just couldn't show it at 9pm on BBC One, it doesn't feel right.
Very good title sequence though.
