Period crime drama serial Dandelion Dead was based on a true story from the 1920’s which saw solicitor Major Herbert Armstrong accused of murdering his wife.
Another strong role for the superb Kitchen and good to see a rare TV performance from Sarah Miles too as his wife who eventually succumbs to poisoning.
