Storyline

Returning from a Swiss business trip, executive Mark Bretherick finds the dead bodies of his wife Geraldine and daughter in the bathtub. It looks like a suicide, but there's no note or known motive. Country police chief Proust gives the case to recent London transferee, detective sergeant Charlie Zailer. Lacking confidence, she ignores the advice of veteran DC Simon Waterhouse, imagining a conspiracy. Bretherick gets a visit from a strange woman who claims to have had an affair with a man using Mark's name. Written by KGF Vissers

Excellent murder mystery drama-thriller
15 May 2011 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I do love a good drama/murder mystery/thriller, and Case Sensitive was exactly that. The whole drama is stylishly filmed, with the photography excellent and the location shooting beguiling. The story is very gripping and interesting, while the writing is wry, intelligent and sometimes tense too and the direction is solid. The acting is as good as can be, Olivia Williams and Darren Boyd are both outstanding and their subdued chemistry shines through loud and clear. And when it comes to the support acting, Rupert Graves in very strung-up mode especially stands out, and the lady who plays Sally is very believable. The drama goes along at a good pace with each explanation unfolding nicely, but here come my only complaints of Case Sensitive. Pacing wise, the first half is better and more compelling than the second, whereas the first half goes quite quickly during the last thirty or so minutes the drama slows down and I will admit my interest wavered slightly. My other complaint is the ending, I understood most of the explanations leading up to that point and the revelation of the culprit was well done and clever, but it did feel slightly rushed through and some of it did come across as far-fetched making me reach towards the rewind button. Overall though, Case Sensitive was excellent. 8/10 Bethany Cox
