Heart has learnt a drama series based of Suffolk serial killer Steve Wright will be broadcast in a matter of weeks.
Called 'Five Daughters' the BBC series has already been filmed in Bristol. We've been told it's scheduled to appear on tv in May or June.
The story; despite its title, will focus on three of the women killed by Steve Wright in late 2006. It stars former Coronation Street actress Sarah Lancashire, and Ray Winstone's daughter Jaime. The programme has been made with the full cooperation of Suffolk Police and is expected to cover how the investigation was carried out, as well as some background details of Steve Wright's victims.
Though Heart hasn't learnt which of the women, who worked as prostitutes in Ipswich's red light district, the story will focus on, it's thought the first woman that disappeared; Tania Nicol, won't be included in the story. Tania's Mum Kerry was publicly outraged when the BBC announced the drama series was going into production.
How do you feel about Steve Wright's serial killings being dramatised? Is it too soon?
