Product Description


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.

DVD BONUS FEATURE 47-minute behind-the-scenes special.

I find it rare to see a story told out of order work so well. This BBC mini series tells the tale in three distinct parts, starting with the most recent events and going to the oldest.

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.

I bought this dvd because of the wonderful cast & all of the stars. It is ONLY because of this cast that I continued to watch it to the end hoping against hope that things would improve...things did not ever improve. This has to be the most poorly written story I've seen in a long time. Everything makes little sense. There are no natural consequenses to anyone's acts. Basically it follows two screwed up parents barely raising a really messed up daughter & a confused close friend protecting this same daughter. The repetitive theme of music & sound is unsuccessfully trying to give mystery to this silly story. Terrific acting simply cannot overcome the ridiculous script. Actually I don't understand everyone's great review...did we all watch the same story?????

This is a very nice series that has a very solid story. Found it unlike other "crime" dramas. The pacing is slow. Story doesn't drag but doesn't move at decent clip either. The packaging is unfortunately bulky. If you are a fan of English drama's check it out. This series is based off three books. I believe something was lost in the transition from book to film.
