When 22 year old Sian O'Callaghan (Florence Howard) goes missing after a Friday night out with friends, Detective Superintendent Steve Fulcher (Martin Freeman) quickly realises that this is no ordinary missing persons case. A prime suspect is identified but when Fulcher questions him about Sian's whereabouts it sets both men on a journey which will change their lives forever as well as reveal the fate of Sian and another local girl, Becky Godden-Edwards (Stephanie Hyam).
In his fight to get justice for the mothers, Elaine Pickford (Siobhan Finneran) and Karen Edwards (Imelda Staunton), Steve discovers that the rights of the victim are not always as valued as the rights of the suspect and that his actions have devastating consequences for his career and family. Based on a true story.

For Truth - A Confession review by LN

Spoiler Alert

A true story, about the real murders of two women many years apart, by Christopher Halliwell.

Dramatisation based on "extensive research, interviews and published accounts".

Martin Freeman as the Snr Det Supt Steve Fulcher does technically miss applying the professed PACE rules during an arrest as the suspect suddenly opens up slightly by admitting a further murder (of the daughter of Imelda Staunton and Peter Wight as the parents of Becky). You can feel for Fulcher who is a dedicated officer when he's disgracefully pilloried by his own and you feel the pain of all the others when so many doors to justice are slammed in their faces. Such is the corkscrew logic of strict legal rules without consequent use of common sense when it is applied.

A worthy watch. Enjoyed this.
