Murder in Mind: Flashback (S2EP5 BBC One 23 Mar 2002, Nigel Havers, Art Malik)



In Flashback, successful barrister, Nicholas Chadwack, plots to kill Angela, his mistress, when she demands money to keep their affair secret. He successfully frames one of his clients with the murder (by planting forensic evidence at the murder scene), whom he then “defends” in court.

The story plays out in flashbacks which are presented in reverse chronological order – so we first see the trial, then the method of framing, then the murder, then the development of the motive.
