Criminal Justice will be gripping

According to the Mirror, Maxine Peake is utterly brilliant in this Autumn's Criminal Justice.

"The Shameless star plays depressed, middle-class housewife Juliet who finds herself in hot water after her barrister husband (Matthew Macfadyen) turns up a bit dead.

Just like last year, the drama will be screened on five consecutive weeknights in the autumn.

My source reveals: "The story is utterly gripping. You want to believe that she didn't do it but the problem is... maybe she did.""

Finally, TV Times, which has been a strong charitable donor for the London Marathon, happened to mention the following blurb

Since then the magazine has raised a large amount of cash for the charity, including by persuading star the star of TV's Spooks, Matthew Macfadyen, to run the London marathon."

She makes a fine fist of it, waddling into the murderous croquet lawns and treacherous vicars' gardens of rural England with aplomb. Tonight she investigates the deaths of business tycoon Rex Fortescue, his wife, Adele, and their housemaid, Gladys. You know you're in Marple territory when the first murder weapon is a cup of tea.
