‘The Long Shadow’, featuring a score by Sarah Warne premieres Monday 25th September at 9pm on ITV and ITVX. The seven-part true crime drama written by George Kay, directed by Lewis Arnold, and starring Toby Jones, David Morrissey, Katherine Kelly, Jill Halfpenny and Daniel Mays, tells the story of the five-year manhunt for the serial killer Peter Sutcliffe, commonly referred to as The Yorkshire Ripper.
‘With the victims, their families and the survivors at the heart of this series, The Long Shadow brings a new perspective to a well-documented story. Meticulously researched and drawing upon the most extensive archive of the investigation, comprising of hundreds of case files, interview transcripts and police reports, the series is also based on Wicked Beyond Belief, Michael Bilton’s critically acclaimed account of the case, published by William Collins.’
