Place of Execution (2009)
An ITV drama re-aired here as part of Masterpiece Contemporary. It was basically a Cold Case episode, only longer. A documentary filmmaker (Juliet Stevenson - not very good) investigates a murder case from forty years earlier. The flashback scenes were the best, with Lee Ingleby playing the lead detective. I'll watch anything where detectives search for bodies on barren moors but, ultimately, this one was dragged down not by its ludicrous solution (most murder mysteries have those) but by its lame dialog.
