Storyline

1965:- Following the cot death of their baby daughter young marrieds Maureen and David Smith are comforted and ultimately influenced by Maureen's older sister Myra Hindley and her boyfriend Ian Brady but David is horrified to witness Brady murder teen-ager Edward Evans and goes to the police, as a result of which Brady is arrested. The police investigation links Brady and Hindley to the disappearance of several local children, especially when a pornographic photo of 10-year old Lesley Ann Downey is found, along with a tape of her pleading for her life. The bodies of Lesley and John Kilbride are discovered in shallow graves on Saddleworth moor and Brady and Hindley are tried for murder, receiving multiple life sentences, though David is exonerated despite the pair trying to implicate him and it will be some years before the murderers confess to the whereabouts of other victims. Five years later the Smiths have separated and Maureen is persuaded by her grandma to visit Myra, who has now... Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

[talking about Myra, several years after her conviction and imprisonment]
Maureen Smith: I have to believe what my heart tells me, Dave. And my heart tells me whatever Myra did in the past, she's a different person now.
Dave Smith: She's worse than Brady, Maureen. I mean, he's just a sicko, a sex case - the king of the sex cases. But Myra - she's human: she had feelings. Remember the tears when Angela Dawn died? That card she gave us? "Another little flower for God's fucking garden"! Jesus! She was killing kids at the ...

Chilling and absorbing
16 May 2006 | by beresfordjdSee all my reviews

Sean Harris and Maxine Peake really bring the monsters that were the Moors Murderers to life. Harris is fantastically disturbing,chilling and creepy as the ultimate manipulator and chief instigator of the most infamous series of murders in the last century. George Costigan as the policeman is also seen performing at the top of his game. I was worried about the way this extremely sensitive subject was going to be handled but it was perfectly done. Still shocking but not graphic apart from one scene of the murder of Eric Evans. That shocked me and I thought I was unshockable after a lifetime of watching all genres of movie. I never imagined that anyone would tackle this gruesome story for many more years but it is a story crying out to be dramatised. We never learn about why the couple did what they did but we do see the devastating effect it had on the people surrounding them. I do not think I will see anything which will stay with me for so long as this will.
