Highest Recommendation--Kavanagh Goes Home

Shattering story. A young couple is accused of murdering their toddler in her crib. From start to finish, you get to know why they turned out as they did, and how tragic that is. Though written over two decades ago, the despair, drugs, loneliness and poverty are still with us, in many ways unchanged with time.

Oliver Ford Davies steals every scene he is in, and that's quite a feat. John Thaw's character returns to his home town to defend the man accused of murder. The irony of where Kavanagh was raised and the estate homes nearby is hard to miss. There but for a few blocks, and real parents, lives are made or lost. The system still fails far too many, and that's the real lesson in this episode.
