The story about the murder of an 11-year-old boy, Rhys Jones in Croxteth, Liverpool, in 2007 and his parents, Melanie's and Steve's ordeal, and how Rhys's murderer and associates were eventually brought to justice.
Brían F. O'Byrne,
As she deals with an unexpected pregnancy, D.I. Helen Weeks must return to the hometown she loathes to help her childhood best friend, who finds herself at the centre of a media frenzy following the abduction of two teenage girls.
This needed to be scripted and played so strongly and correctly and I think they hit the mark. Maybe we need more, the amount of young women who have come forward in the last 10 is shocking and heartbreaking. But more than that it makes me angry that I live around the area and we were blind to it.
This should be a warning to us all that tippy toeing around because we might cause offence does not and should never come before the welfare of our children.
Sad thing about this series is that one community will get tarred with the brush, which is unfair but more must have known what was going on even if they opposed it.
Some great performances, my favourite was from maxine Peak, superb.
Watch it, be careful if you have teen children
