Robert Mc Gladdery was the last man hanged in Northern Ireland for the murder of Newry girl Pearl Gamble. This Documentary Drama digs deep to discover what really happened and reveals new insights into the Mc Gladdery Case.
I watched this show with baited breath as I followed the story since it started to unwind in the early 90's. I found the show well acted and the lead character well played. Though the lead may have seemed wooden this was not a fault of the actor as the real person was a genuine psychopath and had no interest and little or no ability in interacting with other people. I found the eldest daughter was over acted with all the screaming and shouting. She did not show the feelings of some one who has been systematically abused and down trodden over many years. I found though over all it to be a good and accurate portrayal of how an abuser works. Also the showing of the American Sheriff gives a great description of how, when an offender is allowed to move from jurisdiction to jurisdiction his crimes can be well hidden.
