Far-right protesters chant outside court as nine men accused of grooming and sex-trafficking of young girls stand in the dock. It’s a harrowing experience for Holly, who must endure cross-examination by each of their barristers. Which means she must insist, nine times, that she’s telling the truth.
As Nicole Taylor’s drama based on the Rochdale child abuse scandal ends, there is no sense that “everything will turn out all right in the end”. The girls’ experiences were hideous and life-changing. Now ex-detective Maggie Oliver (Lesley Sharp) feels she betrayed the girl whose trust she worked so hard to win.
The reverberations continue long after the trial is over, not least among Rochdale’s British-Pakistani community.
With the court case finally drawing to a close, Holly, Amber and Ruby are faced with trying to rebuild their fragile lives and putting the horrors they have suffered behind them. Meanwhile, Sara and Maggie, who fought hard to protect the girls and bring the perpetrators to justice, also face an uncertain future. Can their experiences stop the same mistakes happening again? Conclusion of the fact-based drama, starring Maxine Peake and Lesley Sharp. Last in the series.
