The murder and sexual assault of the young model Rachel Nickell on Wimbledon Common in 1992 was particularly horrific. Her two-year-old son sat next to her dead body, telling his mum to wake up. After a series of police errors, her real killer was finally brought to justice 16 years later, allowing him in the process to take away two more lives.
Real Crime retells the story, bringing to life the controversial police tactics to find Rachel's killer.
This is the final episode and the only one that I thought was disappointing and didn't enjoy. I felt, at times, that Ms Nickel's husband was getting blamed for suing the police service. Also, I have no interest in hearing the voice of that weirdo Colin Stagg. Definitely a real crime that rightfully belongs within this series; maybe this one should be dealt with slightly differently
Well presented, told and performed. Definitely need more episodes and I will be looking out for them
