A few months ago I mentioned that I’d been in a shoot for a documentary with re-enacted scenes about some murders… it’s on telly at 10pm tonight in the UK, and repeated at many other times.
It’s episode six of Shallow Grave, ‘The Collectors’, on the Crime+Investigation channel, which is on Sky, Virgin, BT TV, and TalkTalk. We don’t get any of those, and I haven’t seen any footage from the show, so maybe I’ll never know what it’s like.
Here’s the blurb (I’m playing Christopher Edwards):
William and Patricia Wycherley had faded from view sometime after May 1998. The elderly couple had little contact with neighbours in their quiet Mansfield cul de sac. They had few family bar their daughter Susan, an only child. They were described as reclusive. None the less, Christmas cards were sent and their home and garden were well maintained with no cause for concern. Their daughter Susan mentioned the retired couple would probably settle in Ireland having sold their house. However, in 2005, Susan’s husband Christopher Edwards made a shocking confession that would lead detectives back to the Wycherley’s garden.
