The Reckoning

reckoning2When 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.


‘Essentially a re-working of Dostoevsky’s ‘Crime and Punishment’, Ashley Jenson gives an excellent performance’. The Times

‘The Reckoning delivered two terrific hours of compelling drama’ Sunday Mirror

‘If you watch the first five minutes, you’ll be hooked’ The Mail

‘Taut and Hitchcockian, this drama’s sure to be a hit’ The Express
