Storyline

The police investigation links Brady and Hindley to the disappearance of several local children, especially when a pornographic photo of 10-year old Lesley Ann Downey is found, along with a tape of her pleading for her life.

Quotes

[talking about Myra, several years after her conviction and imprisonment]
Maureen Smith: I have to believe what my heart tells me, Dave. And my heart tells me whatever Myra did in the past, she's a different person now.
Dave Smith: She's worse than Brady, Maureen. I mean, he's just a sicko, a sex case - the king of the sex cases. But Myra - she's human: she had feelings. Remember the tears when Angela Dawn died? That card she gave us? "Another little flower for God's fucking garden"! Jesus! She was killing kids at the ...

Convincing and Harrowing
18 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the first known dramatisation of the infamous Moors Murders around the Northern English city of Manchester in the 1960's.Even four decades on,the case still provokes utter revulsion at such evil and depraved acts of murder.It was apparently made with full co-operation of the victims' families,which in hindsight was a sensible and sensitive decision by the filmmakers involved.It could quite easily have lapsed into sensationalism and exploitation;that it doesn't is a tribute to all involved;it is very well made with excellent performances all round;Sean Harris and Maxine Peake(previously better known for her comedic roles)are chilling and believable as the callously evil Brady and Hindley;newcomer Michael McNulty gives a very fine performance as the naive,easily-led David Smith,but Joanne Froggatt is outstanding as Hindley's sister Maureen Smith.In a part that could easily have turned into rampant hysteria,Ms Froggatt is very moving and heartbreaking as the decent-minded young woman whose life is more or less ruined by the horrific actions of her sibling.It is arguable that the stress involved led to Maureen's early death aged only 34.

The one large problem with the production is with the story being so unremittingly harrowing and unpleasant,one is somewhat confused as to what to say in conclusion.That it is very well made,acted and produced,certainly.That we do not see the killings themselves(with the savage exception of Edward Evans,very brutal and in semi-darkness),and none of the gruesome details related to them is praiseworthy;but the extreme nastiness surrounding the whole case still makes for a very dubious and disturbing cumulative effort despite it's considerable technical quality.In my view,a more documentary approach to the subject would've been the correct way to dramatise such a story,but nevertheless full marks to cast and crew for their sensitivity in handling such a dreadfully grim subject.
