Too abridged to fully comprehend

Very well performed -- it's the BBC after all -- but because of the half hour time constraint, too many details are lost -- particularly during the trial scene. If you already know the story, this version is ok. Read the original short story or listen to Christopher Lee's reading of it which is much better.
