Ethereal beauty Angel Wharton is the devil in disguise. When she kidnaps a child as prey for a pedophile, you know she is evil. But what — or who — made her that way? This riveting British miniseries explores the mind and motivations of a psychopath (Emilia Fox, The Pianist), moving backwards through time to learn where it all went wrong. Is it the fault of Angel’s father (Charles Dance, Bleak House), an ambitious but distant vicar? Her weak mother? The family friend obsessed with secrets? A long-dead heretic priest and his apocalyptic writings? Or the family friend who betrayed her? Based on the acclaimed Roth Trilogy by crime writer Andrew Taylor, this tense drama unravels the web of circumstances that creates a serial killer. Also starring Clare Holman (Inspector Morse), Emma Fielding (Cranford), Mark Benton (Booze Cruise), and Niamh Cusack.
