You can always trust Kenneth Branagh to pull one special moment out of the bag in whatever venture he is doing, time and time again the actor just seemingly, like a highly rated magician, leaves the audience gasping at the truth he wears behind the character’s mask. From his work promoting Shakespeare, through to the brilliant Shackleton and to his latest venture Wallander, Kenneth Branagh has given everything for the stage and screen.

There is a demon that stalks all of us, it will eventually claim us all at one time or another and as it sits waiting patiently for us to succumb, the only question worth asking is what form will it take?

The passage of time has never seemed to erase any interest or mawkish fascination in the case of Lord Lucan and his alleged crime of murder, in fact like Jack the Ripper nearly 90 years before him or Dr. Crippen, the more years pass, the stronger the interest seems to get, human nature becomes overwhelming in the search for the truth; even when that truth will certainly never be found.
