Case Sensitive ITV1 drama premiere

   ITV has commissioned a new two-part drama, Case Sensitive, based on the highly acclaimed and chilling psychological suspense novel Point of Rescue from Sophie Hannah.

Episode one airs on Monday 2nd May at 9pm, with part two airing on Tuesday 3 May, also at 9pm.

In part one, when Geraldine Bretherick and her 5-year-old daughter Lucy are found dead in the bath of their luxury home, the case divides new DS Charlie Zailer and her DC Simon Waterhouse.

Is it murder, suicide or something even more sinister, and how watertight is the alibi of the husband Mark?

Meanwhile, when Sally Thorne, a working mother with a husband and two young children, hears of the deaths, she is shocked and appalled. Months before she’d met Mark Bretherick at a hotel and had a brief but passionate affair with him.

Now she feels the need to get in touch with him again to offer her sympathy. Her friend Esther does not think this is very wise…

Case Sensitive was filmed on location in Buckinghamshire and was directed by Charles Martin (Skins, Being Human, Married Single Other).

The Executive Producer for Hat Trick Productions is Mark Redhead (Mutual Friends, God On Trial, Bodies, Bloody Sunday). The producer is Christopher Hall (The Lost World, Archangel, Burn Up).

Of the new drama, ITV’s Director of Drama Commissioning, Laura Mackie, said, “Case Sensitive is adapted from an engrossing novel which not only tackles the dark side of motherhood but also mistaken identity and murder.

“It’s a superb adaptation of Sophie Hannah’s highly contemporary crime novel and I’m delighted that Olivia Williams is on board to play DS Charlie Zailer.”

I cannot wait to see this one!
