John Christie was the classic ambiguous serial killer. He was filthy but was also fastidious, he was a monster who got away with murdering young girls for years and there was a sexual element to his killings that gave these crimes a sickening twist.
Fred re-examines what really happened in the original house of horrors, 10 Rillington Place, and looks into how Christie evaded the authorities during a decade of destruction. He tells the story of how Christie gained the trust of vulnerable women and used that dependence to kill up to eight people, before investigating how neighbour Timothy Evans was hanged for two of these crimes. Fred interviews 90-year-old Len Trevellion, who was a policeman at the time and spoke to Christie on a number of occasions. He tells Fred, for the first time on television, that Christie and his wife Ethel were running a back street abortion clinic.
