When single mother Sally Ronson (Ashley Jenson) received a letter from a solicitor telling her she had been named in the will of a stranger, she was intrigued. Assuming she had been left a few hundred pounds from some distant relative, she headed up to the solicitor’s office with low expectations.
And there, alone in a private room with a CD the benefactor had made for her, she heard she was to inherit five million pounds. And all she had to do to get it, was kill a man. ‘A man who deserves to die’.
A high concept story of revenge and betrayal, The Reckoning captivated 6.5 million viewers on ITV1.
“Very subtly and deftly done with a terrific cast, Francesca Annis is wonderfully scary.”
