Tv Season Info
The sense of dread and guilt that permeates each interaction, combined with the flashback structure that makes this more ghost story than murder mystery, almost makes each of the Argylls at fault in their own way.
Not quite the ordeal of the title, but not the enthralling mystery you might be wanting, either.
It's all top-notch here, including the production design and the work of the entire ensemble.
Three episodes might be one too many, but Ordeal by Innocence is a remarkably taut piece of writing.
Fine acting, especially by Anna Chancellor and Matthew Goode; a good script; and competent direction make it a worthwhile three-hour binge.
