DCS David Baker headed up the investigation into the brutal murders of two Leicestershire schoolgirls between 1983 and 1987. Only a few miles away, Dr Alec Jeffreys, was a scientist at Leicester University who, on 10 September 1984, invented a remarkable technique to read each individual's unique DNA fingerprint. When a local teenager admitted to one of the murders but not the other, Baker asked Jeffreys to analyze the DNA evidence left at the crime scenes. Both men were shocked to discover that the teenager was innocent, his confession false. DCS Baker then took the extraordinarily brave step to launch the world's first ever DNA manhunt, testing over five thousand local men to track down the killer. —dvd
understated and more realistic
There's no action just an interesting story with out any hype or Hollywood gimmicks . it has the pace of what actual , real police work might be like. David Threlfall is great in the lead as a seasoned policeman doing his job patiently which being so unlike most police shows make it stand alone in the genre. The show more than met my expectations and proceeded to give a believable narrative throughout which is what makes it different and better than most shows.
