The three-part drama written by Simon Tyrrell, revisits the Soham murders through the eyes of Maxine Carr.

The series will follow the 2002 police investigation into school assistant Maxine Carr (Jemma Carlton) and her caretaker fiancé Ian Huntley (Scott Reid).

Huntley was convicted of the murders of ten-year-old schoolgirls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman and sentenced to 40 years in prison.

The drama will look at Carr’s complicated and turbulent relationship with Huntley, uncovering why she gave him a false alibi and her label as public enemy number one.
