Storyline

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 ...

As haunting and disturbing as it could have been, despite some flaws
18 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** The Works **** Just Misses the Mark *** That Little Bit In Between ** Lagging Behind * The Pits

To mark the 40th anniversary of Ian Brady and Myra Hindley's convictions for the horrific 'Moors Murders', ITV1 has produced this dramatization of their hunt, capture and conviction, charting their friendship with Dave Smith (Michael McNulty), boyfriend of Hindley's sister, whom Brady tried to warp into his twisted little world. It was only when he saw Brady butchering 17 year old Edward Evans to death that it all came out and the pair were caught.

People reacted to this production with the expected mixed emotions. It was always going to be one of the most controversial productions the station had ever green-lighted, and there was understandable out-rage, offense and shock from some when it went ahead. But the families of the victims were okay with it and this drama does manage to be as realistic yet sensitive as it could possibly be.

This can hardly be described as 'entertaining', but by telling the dark true story that it is, it does play out with the required haunting gusto, with some dark camera shots and a few quiet, reflective scenes.

Performances wise, Sean Harris and Maxine Peake as the two main characters are highly effective, as are some of the supporting cast including George Costigan as the detective who lead the investigation that brought the pair to justice. Some of the others might need to brush up on their craft a bit, but they do not stop what is generally a well made and very effective timely re-telling of events nobody wanted to know but had to hear. ****
