Based on the novel by Ruth Rendell and adapted by Adrian Hodges, Thirteen Steps Down stars Luke Treadaway, Geraldine James, Elarica Gallacher, Anna Calder-Marshall & Gemma Jones and follows Mix Cellini, a young man with a disturbed past. Brought up by his mother, Mix was almost killed by his drunken step-father when, aged 6, he was accused of attempting to kill his little sister with a ketchup bottle. Now aged 29, the attractive Mix has two compelling obsessions: infamous serial killer Reginald Christie of 10 Rillington Place and supermodel Nerissa Nas. Mix manages to tread a dangerous line between reality and fantasy but when part-time girlfriend Danila Kovic criticises Nerissa he becomes enraged, unleashing a long pent-up violence from within. With better luck and different circumstances Mix’s life may well have taken a more positive turn. Instead one heinous act compounds upon another and reality blends with fantasy, until Mix’s obsessions collide and his world implodes.
