Case Sensitive (ITV1 2011, Olivia Williams, Darren Boyd)

Published

on


Two part crime drama Case Sensitive begins when Detective Sergeant Charlie Zailer and Detective Constable Simon Waterhouse are called in to investigate the shocking deaths of a mother Geraldine Bretherick and her five year old daughter Lucy.

Unsure whether it is murder or suicide Zailer and Waterhouse must examine every angle, including putting husband Mark under close scrutiny. Meanwhile Sally Thorne who previously had an affair with Mark decides to get back in touch with him only to discover that the man she believed to be Mark is someone else entirely!

Good to see a Sophie Hannah adaptation, she pens a nice line in psychological thrillers and there is a nice line in antigonism between Zailer and Waterhouse too. A second Case Sensitive two parter followed a year later, this was called The Other Half Lives after that ITV confirmed they would not be making further episodes.
