A stalker tackles three women in London. First 23-year old likable schoolteacher Zoe Haratounian, who beats off a thief and gets declared a local heroine by the press, gets scary anonymous letters, but because she runs off from the police station when the desk officer cheerfully calls her 'our poster girl' to a colleague when recognizing her on a press cutting, it takes days before the police can even send over PC Andrew Stadden, a detective in training. She breaks up with her 'not sensitively supportive' hunky boyfriend, gardener Fred, who even gets investigated as a suspect and only has his soccer mates Maurice 'Moz' 'Hack' Burnside and Jase to fall back on. When she thinks it's over, she gets killed at home. Next Jennifer Hintlesham, who lives in affluence with her husband, businessman Dominic 'Dom', and their sons Josh (13) and Kristo (6), complete with nanny, believes the first letter suggesting Dom is unfaithful, as he once was years ago, then rips open her fingers on a razor ...

confusing thriller,but you have to watch to see who did it
4 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just finished watching the final part of this 2 part ITV thriller. I had hoped it would be worth watching but it was a frustrating 3 hours. I will not go into detail to avoid spoilers but I found the plot confusing and unrealistic. The story involves someone killing 3 women in London,maybe West London but I don't recognise the locations,I am not from London. 3 women are in danger,several are killed,the police team trying to catch the bad person is led by Phyllis Logan,she is the best known member of the cast but it is not her finest hour,she does not have much to do and does not make a great impression.

I recognise only one other person in the cast,there are no great performances,you know when sometimes you see a debut performance and think,I will look out for the actor/actress,there was nobody like that here. I kept watching to the end to know who did the bad deeds but it was no classic,the people who made this seem to have not stopped to look at what they were making,it is confused and hard to watch. Perhaps with more time,a bigger budget and a better script this would have been worth watching,it is from a novel so we must assume the novel must have some merit. I would not bother to watch this unless there is really nothing else on,many of the characters are women so perhaps it would be better appreciated by women but I don't think so (I am male)

There are several red herrings before you discover the real killer at the end
