The Story Of One Of Britain’s Most Brutal Murders

HBO just released the trailer for the upcoming true-crime limited series The Murders At White House Farm starring Stephen Graham.

In 1985, near the village of Tolleshunt D’Arcy, Essex, England, a family of five was brutally murdered at White House Farm. At first, it looked like a murder-suicide situation, but then suspicion turned to another, still-living member of the family. The Murders At White House Farm dramatises the story, drawing on “extensive research, interviews and published accounts.”

Here’s the trailer –

The official blurb from HBO Max reads –

“An infamous true crime story. Over thirty years ago, three generations of one family were murdered at their isolated farm. Initial evidence pointed the finger at the daughter of the family who had a history of mental illness, however one detective refused to accept this and delved deeper into the investigation. His determination uncovered new evidence that shed suspicion on another family member. This is a dramatized true crime story based on extensive research, interviews and published accounts, looking at the mystery behind what happened that fateful day.”

The series stars Graham and Mark Addy as the two detectives assigned to the case, and are joined by Freddie Fox, Gemma Whelan, and Alexa Davies.

The Murders At White House Farm originally aired in the UK earlier this year, and now the 6-episode drama premieres on HBO Max September 24th.
