First post on here but was moved to join simply by this programme. I have never before seen - on the BBC at least - such a pointless, witless 'drama' as this. The main characters were stunted and badly drawn and it was clear from the off that all of them needed medical attention. For a crime drama, the police 'involvement' was half-witted and virtually non-existent. The homes of important 'players' were left un-searched, potential evidence (computers) untouched and supposed vigilante action went un-noticed and undetected. There were so many inconsistencies and flaws I began to suspect it was actually meant to be a comedy. I mean - come on - where did those pebbles keep falling from? As Freddie Mercury once said: "Is this the real life or is it just fantasy..." The only redeeming factor was the wonderful Lesley Manville, who managed to bring some life and humour to her flawed character. Even then there was inconsistency - for a woman who so wanted to be rid of her accursed spouse, why did she continue to wear her wedding ring right to the end? Five hours wasted and lawd knows how much taxpayers cash
