ITV’s new drama about the ‘worst serial killer Wales has ever seen’ starts tonight

“Two unsolved double murders from the 1980s cast a shadow over the work of the Dyfed Powys police force”

ITV

The Pembrokeshire Murders starring Luke Evans starts on ITV tonight and it promises to be your next favourite series. 

Airing over Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week, The Pembrokeshire Murders follows Welsh actor Luke Evans as Senior Investigating Officer, Steve Wilkins as he reopens two unsolved double murders in Wales. 

The synopsis reads: “Two unsolved double murders from the 1980s cast a shadow over the work of the Dyfed Powys police force. In 2006, newly promoted Detective Superintendent Steve Wilkins decided to reopen both cases,

“Employing pioneering forensic methods, Wilkins and his handpicked team found microscopic DNA and fibres that potentially linked the murders to a string of burglaries committed in the 80s and 90s.

“The perpetrator of those robberies was nearing the end of his prison sentence, but if Steve Wilkins was right, he was also a serial killer… Could Steve and his team find enough forensic evidence to charge their suspect before he was released to potentially kill again?”

Keith Allen plays John Cooper, the Welsh serial killer who was given life in 2011 for the 1985 double murder of siblings Richard and Helen Thomas and the 1989 double murder of Peter and Gwenda Dixon. 

The true story gained significant media attention at the time when it was discovered that John had appeared on Bullseye in 1989, a factor which later became a crucial element in his identification. 

Speaking about the show, Luke Evans admitted he was hooked from the start: “The story hooked me immediately. I mean, also, I’m a sucker for a true story and this isn’t just a true story, it’s a shocking, true story about the worst serial killer that Wales has ever seen.

“I got to use my own Welsh accent for the first time in many, many, many years and it was a great experience all around.”

He continued: “These stories do feel like they can’t be true, they can’t be real. But this one has so many twists and turns and it almost feels many, many times during the story that the whole thing is going to go cold once again, because the forensic evidence is so minimal and the budgets were running out and people were losing faith.”

The Pembrokeshire Murders airs tonight (Monday 11th January) at 9pm on ITV.

One Gogglebox star has been branded ‘unrecognisable’ after completely shaving his head.

Stephen Webb, who features on Gogglebox with husband Daniel Lustig, recently shared his new dramatic look on Instagram.

The Brighton-based couple are both hairdressers and after viewers recently claimed Stephen ‘looked like Ken Barlow’ with his long hair, he’s decided to chop it all off. 

The 48-year-old grabbed a razor and shaved right down the middle of his head.

BBC will broadcast primary and secondary school lessons on TV during lockdown

Great news for parents

Published

BBC

Lessons will be broadcasted by the BBC to help children keep up with their education in lockdown.

As part of the latest lockdown schools have been forced to close leaving many parents concerned about their education. The BBC has now confirmed they will show curriculum-based programmes on TV from Monday, January 11th. 

In the first lockdown last year, the BBC provided lessons via iPlayer, the red button and online but not on regular TV. 

This time around, there will be three hours of primary school programming every weekday on CBBC, plus two hours for secondary school pupils on BBC Two. 

The move comes after concerns were raised for those in low-income families, who may struggle to afford data packages so children can take part in online learning.

BBC Director-General Tim Davie explained education is ‘absolutely vital’, adding: “The BBC is here to play its part and I’m delighted that we have been able to bring this to audiences so swiftly.”

Boris Johnson praised the BBC’s ‘fantastic’ plans, which will feature primary programmes from 9am every day, including BBC Live Lessons and BBC Bitesize Daily, as well as Our School, Celebrity Supply Teacher, Horrible Histories and Operation Ouch.

For secondary students, BBC Two will be showing content that supports the GCSE curriculum such as adaptations of Shakespeare plays alongside science, history and factual titles.

Episodes of Bitesize Daily for both primary and secondary will air every day as well as being available on demand on iPlayer, as well as on the red button. 

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said the BBC ‘has helped the nation through some of the toughest moments of the last century’.

He added: “And for the next few weeks it will help our children learn whilst we stay home, protect the NHS and save lives,” he added. “This will be a lifeline to parents and I welcome the BBC playing its part.”
