The four-part drama which originally aired in 2017 tells the true story of the murder of 11-year-old Rhys Jones from Liverpool in 2007. The series follows his parents, Melanie (Sinead Keenan) and Steve (Brían F. O’Byrne), and how Rhys’s murderer and associates were eventually brought to justice with the help of Detective Superintendent Dave Kelly (Stephen Graham).
Another harrowing retelling of a sensitive story. The superb cast tell the heartbreaking story brilliantly, really drawing you into the lives of Rhys’s parents whose lives were changed in the worst possible way.
The series is fast-paced but it’s still compelling in its drama. Sinead Keenan and Stephen Graham both give captivating performances, and it’s a story that we should all know the full story about.
