Storyline

A serial killer has been viciously attacking women before murdering them. However one victim survives and names the arrogant Damon Morton as her assailant. The case is not helped by the fact that Morton clearly has a hold over people, such as the three employees who come forward to claim responsibility for the crimes and his put-upon wife, who gives him an alibi.

Gory but gripping
18 June 2001 | by (Surrey, England) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting new way (if you exclude the first T&R!) of presenting a murder case. It follows the story from the first murder to the verdict in court.

A serial killer is stalking women in London, torturing them and then murdering them. When suspects are arrested the police face a difficult task to get to the bottom of the mystery. Any more would give it away!

The story has much graphic violence but it is in context and adds realism to an already gripping piece of television.

The story benefits from superb performances from the cast but special praise must go to David Hayman and Kate Buffrey who both portray realistic police officers trying to get the right result.

If you like your murder mysteries with a new slant on them, try this. The good news is that there are altogether four of these stories with the first also being exceptional.

Well done Lynda La Plante and well done ITV for making and showing it.
