Fantastic performances drive this true life story
17 September 2020 | by dootmootSee all my reviews

David Tennant leads a cast that all give really great performances. It's hard to stop watching them as they are talking about such gruesome things, but the acting is so well done you find yourself stunned. Infact, as long as you don't mind a slow burning, show or film that's really based on the actors playing off eachother (in this true story about a horrific serial killer in Britain during the end of the 1970s and into the 1980s), tou should enjoy it.

But if you get bored easily, you may not be able to enjoy this as much as others. That said, I'd definitely recommend it to most anyone.
