| Superb British Drama
An excellent mini-series based on the true story of the events surrounding the murders of 15 year olds Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashworth in a small village outside Leicester, UK. The acting is beautifully metered and subtle and the depiction of life in England in the 1980's is extremely well done. Congratulations to all involved in this series and deepest appreciation to Sir Alec Jeffreys and team and the police force involved for their blood sweat and tears in these tragic cases as well as deepest heartfelt sympathy condolences to Lynda's and Dawn's loved ones.
