DC Anna Travis joins a team on the hunt for a particularly gruesome serial killer. When the latest victim is found and doesn't fit the usual profile of the killer's victims, Travis sets out to prove herself.
The true story of Charmian Brent (née Powell), the rebellious product of a strict 1950s upbringing, and her whirlwind romance with Ronald Biggs leading to a descent into crime, most infamously 1963's Great Train Robbery.
We were delighted to catch the British series 'Without Motive' on AcornTV. It runs for 12 episodes, more or less in 2 parts (1-6 and 7-12). Ross Kemp, a talented actor, plays the main character Jack Mowbray, a police detective (and family man) tasked to a team out to catch a cold-blooded killer who appears to have attacked several young women. The team runs into problems (not the least of which is: too many chiefs) and finally gets their man by Episode 6. Episode 7-12 deal with the aftermath of the court case, including mishandling (or suppression) of evidence, and apparent copy-cat killings. The shows are very suspenseful and are as much about the lives of the characters, as they are about the solving of the crime. Highly-recommended viewing, but I certainly wouldn't want to wait a week between episodes: so stream it from Acorn, or try to find the DVD set. We were hooked from the beginning.
