BBC One’s three-part drama Rillington Place will premiere on Tuesday November 29th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Rillington Place tells the story of the multiple murder committed by John Christie in Notting Hill in the 1940s and 1950s. 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. Each of the three episodes tells the story from a different perspective, as the characters’ lives tragically converge at 10 Rillington Place.
The three-parter, which was penned by Ed Whitmore and Tracey Malone, is based on real-life events and is being produced for the BBC One by BBC Drama Production in association with Bandit Television. The cast is being led by Tim Roth (Lie To Me) and Samantha Morton (The Last Panthers) and also includes Nico Mirallegro (The Village) and Jodie Comer (Doctor Foster). The executive producers are Phillippa Giles for Bandit Television, part of Endemol Shine Group, and Hilary Salmon for BBC Drama Production. Craig Viveiros is the director.
