Brilliant BBC Drama.
27 April 2010 | by filmfan572See all my reviews

As someone from Ipswich myself, I remember the Ipswich serial murders well and so felt a little uncomfortable when the BBC announced they were to make a drama about the events. What can I say? It is absolutely superb. The acting, the whole production cannot be faulted. The series clearly benefits from testimonies given by the families which writer, Stephen Butchard has incorporated into the script to give a true version of events and not a sensationalised account. 'Five Daughters' rejects the stereotype given by the media at the time of these events and portrays the victims as what they were: someone's daughter, sister, aunt etc. A very very good drama on behalf of the BBC which I think should be watched by everyone.
