Movie Info

The Interrogation of Tony Martin tells the story of what happened on the night in 1999 when Norfolk farmer Tony Martin confronted two burglars who broke into his farmhouse. Two males, 29-year-old Brendon Fearon and 16-year-old Fred Barras, had forced their way into Martin's home, intending to steal from him. Martin, who had been plagued by burglaries and had lost faith in the police, blasted his shotgun as the thieves attempted to flee through a window. But when teenager Barras was found dead the following day, Martin's actions divided public opinion. Starring Steve Pemberton as Martin, with Daniel Mays and Stuart Graham as detectives, the drama focuses on the intense three days when the police interviewed Martin for murder. Was he a vulnerable farmer using reasonable force to protect himself and his property or a reckless vigilante, ready and willing to kill? With every word spoken sourced from original documents, this 'verbatim drama' uncovers the missing part of a story that split the country and generated hundreds of newspaper headlines.

Critic Reviews for The Interrogation of Tony Martin

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Keeping the action, such as it is, in the room makes for a novel form of drama, but none the less gripping for that.

Pemberton conveyed nuances with just an inflection or facial twist.

The Interrogation of Tony Martin was an eye-opening, thought-provoking gem.

November 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The language was fascinating, full of suggestive potholes no playwright could have written.

November 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Where there should have been dramatic tension, we got only muddle and hesitation; where we might have hoped for psychological insight, we had only the self-justification of one lonely, paranoid man.
