Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In this two-part British TV drama, Trina Lavery (Sarah Lancashire) returned to her hometown of Stoke after 20 years, there to look after her ailing mother. Upon her arrival, Trina discovered that Bernard Cleve (Lorcan Cranitch), the man who had been arrested for the murder of Trina's best friend, was likewise living in Stoke, his case having been tossed out of court. Though a free man in the eyes of the lawy, Bernard was unable to escape suspicion when another local girl was killed. This time around, however, Trina had a feeling that Bernard was not responsible -- and in setting out to prove her theory, she risked becoming Victim Number Three. Hampered by an unsatisfying conclusion, My Fragile Heart nonetheless enjoyed a large viewership when it was aired by ITV on September 17 and 18, 2000.
