Just started watching it - seems really good already. Fred West (actor) is very good at making me feel very uncomfortable.

just came to start thread myself. Im very worried its going to spook me. it looks very good, an uncanny likeness <<shivers>>

He's so manipulative. That poor woman isn't allowed to repeat anything he's told her. I'd be no good - I'd be sending anonymous notes to the police!

ImperialBlether Sun 04-Sep-11 21:22:26

It's as though she's been in the presence of evil for the first time in her life - awful, awful situation.

I just started watching it too, mainly because I'm a fan of Dominic West after watching The Hour.

I think it will make for uncomfortable viewing - my dh just called me a sicko for watching it (affectionately of course).

I don't understand the role of appropriate adult. Why would he need that? Was it because he had a low IQ?

festi Sun 04-Sep-11 21:27:34

is dominic west palying fred? wonder if there is any distant conection.

Imperial apparently it was because the police were concerned he was of low intelligence

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 04-Sep-11 21:30:59

This is really grim. But glued!

MrsSnoops Sun 04-Sep-11 21:31:41

I'm watching. The way he is so matter of fact about it and sort of showing empathy for his victims. He seems very detached from what he has done.

Very creepy

I would say so imperial, they need to if they feel he has a low intelegance or underlaying psychiatric issue that my need need a full assesmnet. Often APs are called upon in many cases like this due to possible questionable MH etc, it covers the police basically.

festi Sun 04-Sep-11 21:32:51

may not need a full assesment, I should say.

ChazsBrilliantAttitude Sun 04-Sep-11 21:33:28

Its really uncomfortable viewing, its the matter of fact way he talks about killing his own daughter and the game playing.

Dominic West is very good.

god i can't face watching this. now i understand why my mil isn't answering her phone she loves a good serial killer

ImperialBlether Sun 04-Sep-11 21:36:29

About him being straightforward - I remember at the time that he was like that - as though he thought anyone with any sense would agree with him.

MrsSnoops Sun 04-Sep-11 21:37:58

Imperial - how do you know that? About him being straightforward?

southeastastra Sun 04-Sep-11 21:39:19

did fred west really kill himself inside or did someone else do it for him?

festi Sun 04-Sep-11 21:39:20

how would you know that?

Mrsfluff Sun 04-Sep-11 21:39:53

I put it on as there was anything else I fancied & I live in Gloucester. Must say it is very chilling, but good. He's so matter of fact about things, you wouldn't believe he was talking about killing his own child shock

ImperialBlether Sun 04-Sep-11 21:40:11

I remember the case. There was a hell of a lot written about him at the time. He would talk about what he'd done as though he was quite reasonable.

MrsSnoops Sun 04-Sep-11 21:40:45

She's pretty horrible too. confused

ImperialBlether Sun 04-Sep-11 21:40:52

I hope it didn't sound as though I knew him!

festi Sun 04-Sep-11 21:41:11

eww rose is vile.

MyGoldfishIsEvil Sun 04-Sep-11 21:42:11

Why does the appropriate adult have a duty of confidentiality?

festi Sun 04-Sep-11 21:42:24

it did imperial, like you had some insider knowledge grin
