A TV drama telling the story of Janet Leach, whose relationship with serial murderer Fred West played a key role in the capture of his wife, Rosemary West.
When serial killer Fred West (Dominic West) was arrested in 1994 his fragile mental condition led him to be interviewed by the police in the company of 'appropriate adult' Janet Leach (Emily Watson). Appropriate adults are required by law to witness police interrogations of those in a vulnerable condition and are generally drawn from the surrounding community. The relationship that developed between West and Leach, in which he took her as his confidante, was to play a crucial role in the attempts of the police to link his wife, Rosemary West, to his crimes. But what psychological toll would dealing with a character like Fred have on Janet?
Featuring strong performances by Emily Watson (as Janet Leach) and Dominic West (as Fred West), it reveals the extraordinary relationship which developed between the two, as West tried to evade responsibility for his crimes and protect his wife Rosemary from justice. The film is based on extensive research and consultation with numerous people closely involved in the case, including police officers, surviving victims and relatives of victims of the Wests.
