  • 'Dead Clever' was a fun, but not too deep, look at fake murder, false imprisonment and passionate revenge, starring the wonderful Dean Lennox Kelly, Suranne Jones and Helen Baxendale.

    9.0
    Overlook the plotholes and you will have a fun story, a murder that never was, leading to a shoot-out in Oxford - not known for its gunplay.



    I am not a soap-fan, so this was the first I have seen of Suranne Jones(Coronation Street), and thought she acquitted herself very well in the lead role as Julie Bottomley, the wronged wife, who seeks revenge by faking her own murder, and setting her husband up as the guilty party. He is imprisoned and she starts a new life.



    However, an inability to keep quiet about what she has done to old school friend Sarah, played by Helen Baxendale (Cold Feet and Friends) results in the publication of a book, and brings her to the attention of Ian played by the ever-marvellous Dean Lennox Kelly (Shameless and Doctor Who), who is still languishing in prison.



    He gets out and hunts her down, leading to one of the most ludicrous finales I have ever seen - but still it was enjoyable. I recommend it, but don't take it too seriously.moreless
