This is a true story. 'White House Farm' revolves around one fateful night in August 1985 when five members of the same family were murdered at an Essex farmhouse; Sheila Caffell (Cressida Bonas), her twin six-year-old sons, Daniel (Nate Barrowcliffe) and Nicholas (Jude Barrowcliffe), and her parents, Nevill (Nicholas Farrell) and June (Amanda Burton) Bamber. This series provides fresh insight into this family tragedy and the contested accounts of the events that took place at White House Farm.
Is there a need for 6 episodes?
- White House Farm review by TH
I've found this show really drawn out. I know it's based on a true story but I think this story could of been told in 2 or 3 episodes. Mark Addy and Stephen Graham are wasted here and too much focus is on ransoms with the victim and the family given very little focus.
I found this series very entertaining and insiteful, A very realistic telling of a horriffic true story but done in a tasteful way without going overboard like some other true story adaptations. If you are aware of the story previously then i do not think you will be dissapointed in the representation but for myself who was not aware of it i found it although entertaining but hard to believe that this could actually happen and shows how twisted some people can be when they appear to be " so normal " in society.
