This miniseries really took me by surprise. I went into The Murders At White House Farm thinking it’d be background noise, but by the time I got half-way through the six episode series, I was hooked into it.

  • Jeremy Bamber (Freddie Fox) is near Joffrey Baratheon levels of hared in terms of a character. Props to Bamber, the highlight performance of the show.
  • Just another Game Of Thrones connection; this is the first time I remember Mark Addy (playing the dutiful copper DS Stan Jones) in something since he was Robert Baratheon. He has been in plenty of TV shows but I am not an avid TV watcher.
  • The Murders At White House Farm resonates because its grounded in realism. The murdered family was wealthy, but not flamboyant. The few club scenes were subdued and didn’t revel in the splendor of money. This was most prominent in the griminess of the bathroom stall scene between Julie Mugford (Alexa Davies) and Sheila Caffell (Cressida Bonas).
