Based on the real life events, this tense and impactful thriller explores the crimes of John Christie and the subsequent tragic miscarriage of justice in 1940s and 50s London.

The drama is presented over three episodes from three different perspectives, as our characters’ lives tragically converge at 10 Rillington Place.

Christie and his estranged wife Ethel are reunited after a nine year separation and move into 10 Rillington Place. As war breaks out, the fractures in their relationship begin to reappear, with deceit, suspicion and violence never far below the veneer of married respectability.

John Christie is played by Tim Roth and Ethel is played by Samantha Morton (pictured).
