Rillington Place was the address where John Christie and Timothy Evans lived in the ‘40s. This story has some twists and turns, so stick with me. In 1950, Timothy was executed after being convicted of the killing of his wife and baby daughter, but during his trial, he accused his neighbour John (who also happened to be the chief prosecution witness) of the murders. A few years after the execution, Christie was found to be a serial killer and confessed to murdering at least eight people, obviously raising serious doubts in Evans’ conviction. This is a complex story told in a clever way – there are three episodes and they’re told from the respective points of view of the two men, and Christie’s wife, Ethel.
