Starts well but too inacurrate to be true.

So we all know the story and how it ends.

But it was very bizzare to make this limited series make it seem like Charles didn't know what was going on and that it might be a coincidence.

They cheated and got caught. Countless audience members heard and saw them do it but the series tells us only 1 audience member noticed, which is just not true.

There were also loads of witnesses to Diana shouting at Charles for not stopping at the agreed upon amount, rather than just 1 witness in the show.

I really don't know why they felt the need to fabricate the story to make it seem like maybe they didn't do it.

The actual true bits were well done but this series ends up being average because of it's inacurracies when really this could easily have been a solid 8 with minor edits and the truth being shown.

Exciting drama but how much is actually fact?

I tend to be always wary of things based on a true story. A mixture of fact and fiction often blurs the tedious factual parts with outlandish falsehoods to make the show more exciting as a whole. Therefore it can often be difficult to engage yourself to view it as fact as there are a large number of scenes which appear to be grandstanding for the viewers.

Despite the above, the series is actually an exciting drama with some occasional comedy moments. It's certainly worth a viewing. The acting itself appears great, however it's difficult to know how good the acting is considering we're unaware whether the actors are portraying the Ingrams directly or whether there have been things added.

The reason for the 7/10 is not due to the production, excitement or directing, it is due to the script. I am slightly perplexed as to why the script has been written to feel empathy towards Charles Ingram. Although the wife was responsible for pushing Charles, he has surprisingly been made to look the innocent party, this is despite Charles committing insurance fraud before the quiz show fraud. So why has the script been written to make us feel empathetic?

Overall the show is well worth the watch. It's exciting, gripping and interesting. Would really recommend, however most certainly take everything with a pinch of salt - it's not all fact!

Watch the actual epsiode on Youtube afterwards

A very misleading mini series.

It is well made as light entertainment goes and the acting is generally very good with the glaring exception of 'Ingram' who, when portrayed in the chair, is a noticeably different character than you can see on the real how.

The trial is also changed to make interesting television rather than a fair account of the evidence presented.

So - 8 for entertainment and 2 for accuracy.
