Rillington Place, 3 x 60" drama to be screened on BBC 1 in November 2016.

This gripping three-part drama is based on the real-life multiple murders undertaken by John Christie in Notting Hill in the 1940s and Fifties. The subsequent tragic miscarriage of justice, which led to Timothy Evans being hanged for a crime he did not commit, contributed towards the abolition of capital punishment in Britain.

Tim Roth (The Hateful Eight, Cannes Film Festival award-winning Chronic, Pulp Fiction, Lie To Me) plays John Christie, who lived at the infamous address with his wife, Ethel (Samantha Morton, The Unloved, Longford, In America), from where he carried out the multiple murders. Newly-weds Timothy and Beryl Evans, played by Nico Mirallegro (The Village, Common) and Jodie Comer (Doctor Foster, Thirteen), fall prey to Christie's influence after moving into a neighbouring flat.

Rillington Place filmed in BBC Dumbarton Studios and on location in Glasgow in Spring 2016.
