    Great viewing, I know it was a dramatisation but the dignity and generosity of Ameliesí parents that came across is something truly heartwarming.

      Manhunt tells the story of how Detective Colin Sutton tracked down the paedophile and murderer Levy Belfield and linked him to the Millie Dowler murder and two other cases. Clunes is utterly superb as unassuming and quietly stoic Sutton . 2/3rds through it and it is easily one of the best dramas Iíve seen in years. The dogged determination and thorough police work that Sutton insisted on plus some truly startling breakthroughs is fascinating.
      Last episode is on ITV3 tonight. Itís very very good.
      Good arrows sir.

      Just binged it and bloody hell. Very, very good.

      I did do the occasional double take that there was an ITV icon in the corner of my TV though. Quality television doesn't usually have that brand.

      Yes, very good point. Also interesting that Clunes' character pointed out that it would have been unlikely that English parents would have behaved the same way. I think he was probably right, although everyone is different.

      We like to think of ourselves as stoic, and many of us are. But we don't have a monopoly on stiff upper lip.

      Have no words for that piece of shit Belfield. I've met similar scary scumbags but not one who was also a paedo, mysogynist and murderer (that I know of).

      Lowest of the low. Unlimited pain is too good for him.

      He’s been done over a number of times in prison apparently and gets treated like scum by all.

      Good.
      Also one of the very few people in the U.K. sentenced to full natural life prison term. He’s never getting out.

      And now goes by the name Yusuf Rahim.

      Make of that what you will.

      Decided to watch the series after reading the recommendations on this thread, and can only agree, a very good series.

      Possibly more about trying to protect himself. Pretending to be a Muslim will probably mean that at least there are some people of faith who don't want to kill the ****.

      Documentary on the subject the other night. There are some compelling arguments that he was part of a paedophile ring and that he killed many, many more people .
      A case in Bristol fits his MO perfectly and is the town he used to go regularly to buy drugs.
      Quite rightly the police just needed to get something to stick and keep him off the street so concentrated on the ones they knew would likely get a conviction.
      I imagine once he was away for life nobody had the appetite to start investigating him further and bring that darkness into their lives.
