Trivia

Based on the real-life case of Det. Superintendent Steve Fulcher, who, whilst investigating a young woman's disappearance, broke a number of police procedural rules in order to get the prime suspect to confess and reveal the location of the victim. The suspect also simultaneously confessed to the abduction and murder of another young woman several years before. As the suspect had not been formally cautioned and advised of his rights by Fulcher, the case was put in jeopardy. Fulcher's actions were heavily criticised in court and by his superiors and, following disciplinary action, he eventually resigned from the force but does not regret his behaviour given the circumstances.

Best ITV drama for ages.
7 October 2019 | by b_marr-05497See all my reviews

This is a brilliant drama, probably because sadly it's true. Ignore the stuff about dodgy direction, and stuff about shaky cams, it's so involved you won't notice it. Excellent cast too. Martin Freeman always reliable and Jo Absolom who was excellent back in the day in EastEnders is an underrated actor.
