The making of a murderer
Ethereal beauty Angel Wharton is the devil in disguise. When she kidnaps a child as prey for a pedophile, you know she is evil. But what--or who--made her that way?
This riveting British miniseries explores the mind and motivations of a psychopath (Emilia Fox, The Pianist), moving backwards through time to learn where it all went wrong. Is it the fault of Angel’s father (Charles Dance, Bleak House), an ambitious but distant vicar? Her weak mother? The family friend obsessed with secrets? A long-dead heretic priest and his apocalyptic writings? Or the childhood friend who betrayed her?
Based on the acclaimed Roth Trilogy by crime writer Andrew Taylor, this tense drama unravels the web of circumstances that creates a serial killer.
Also starring Clare Holman (Inspector Morse), Emma Fielding (Cranford), Mark Benton (Booze Cruise), and Niamh Cusack.

We see the life of a young woman unravel to the point where she kidnaps a little girl, but her motives stem from her own childhood resentments. As the tale goes on, we see more how the older members of her family failed to get her the mental help she needed.
Emilia Fox plays the title role as Rosie 'Angel' Byfield. She manipulates a pedophile into helping her kidnap little girls and finally plots to take the daughter of her rival. In the second episode, we see her as a young woman struggling with a new stepmother and a mysterious drug using boyfriend. Finally, we see her childhood where her mother kills herself after being suspected of stabbing senile grandpa.
We need all three episodes for a complete picture of who this girl becomes. Each tale shines a light on a different corner of her mind, but leaves enough up in the air to draw us to the next part. It explores side plots of working mothers, relationship dynamics and faith without ever pushing any topic in your face.
I found it interesting and stimulating. I bet you will too.
