    7.0
    Based on the real life murder case of Julia Wallace,though a lot of the facts are misleading. The documentary has the setting as London but in actual fact should have been Liverpool. Wallace's journey to the fictitious address is covered but there are some major inaccuracies. The actual date of the case is also incorrect. Wallace's recognition of a jury member in the court room scene didn't occur either. There are some very good scenes though - the call to the chess club is covered, as is the 'mock' trial held by the insurance union members. The actors are well capable but the script is flawed due to the inaccuracies.moreless
