The Sixth Commandment has arrived on BBC One – here’s a full run down of who’s on the cast.
The new crime drama tells the true story of how teacher Peter Farquhar, his neighbour Ann Moore-Martin and student Ben Field set the stage for one of the most complex and confounding criminal cases in recent memory.
A synopsis shares: “The Sixth Commandment explores the way in which both Peter and Ann were manipulated by Field, capturing the extreme gaslighting, the gripping police investigation and the high-profile trial, while poignantly highlighting the devastating effect of isolation and loneliness, as Field closed in on them.
“It also celebrates both Peter and Ann’s lives as cherished mentors, much loved relatives and adored friends.”
