The people who have reviewed and commented on it. There is a facebook page for example.

If you can't talk about the problem, how are you ever going to even start talking about the solution?

And thinking about this ,the biggest issue are the claimed leading professionals who allowed their names and reputation to be associated with this program.

I personally refused to guess guilty or not guilty because it was not a complete case.


It was a 6 part tv programme - if you want a complete case take a trip to a court where there's a murder trial going on and sit through the whole case.

See, and here is the audience. No it was not a TV program, it was a docudrama. That was meant to be a fictional case, tried as a real case. No wonder they get away with so much.

It was broadcast on telly. That makes it a tv prog.

As Boo says, if you want to see a complete case and not selected bits, go to a Crown Court and sit through one.

but what appears to the gallery is often about a third of the truth of what is happening.

No one was expecting a full case. But something that doesn't have gaping holes isn't too much to ask. Further it clearly had a negative stance towards men, if this had been against any other group there would have been uproar.

"The documentary-drama hybrid allows viewers to see exactly what it's like inside a criminal murder trial, and to find out how the justice system works from all angles. We get to see the thoughts of the accused, the lawyers on both sides, the judge, the witnesses and the jury, who may know it's fictitious, but are judging as if it were real."
