Synopsis:
In 1950, Timothy Evans was hanged for the murder of his baby daughter Geraldine. The police also believed that he had killed his wife Beryl. But to his final moments Evans protested his innocence. Three years later, a gruesome discovery at 10 Rillington Place revealed that his neighbour - star prosecution witness John Reginald Christie (Tim Roth) knew much more about the sinister goings on in the house. Set in the dark confines of Christie's home, this powerful drama imagines the relationships between Christie, his wife Ethel (Samantha Morton) and the innocent young Evans couple.
What twisted influence did Christie hold over the young newly-weds Timothy (Nico Mirallegro) and Beryl (Jodie Comer)? And how was he able to trick both judge and jury into sending an innocent man to the executioner?

Spoiler Alert

Only the BBC drama department can take a fascinating true crime scenario & turn into unwatchable rubbish.

Excellent and very creepy - Rillington Place review by CA

Spoiler Alert
16/08/2020

I thoroughly enjoyed this solid, well acted and very creepy tale of John 'Reginald Christie. It showed London at it's squalid worst just after World War 2, at least the part where the Christie's lived. London is another grim character in a grim tale. Tim Roth as Christie gaslit his poor wife, who showed only brief flashes of spirit. Well worth seeing.
