The Pembrokeshire Murders

The Pembrokeshire Murders

Series 1 - Episode 3

Thu 28 Jan 9pm - 10pm Virgin Media One


The cold case investigation into two double murders and a string of other offences is running out of steam. Its leader, Det Supt Steve Wilkins (Luke Evans), has yet to find the one piece of evidence that will tie his suspect, John Cooper, to the shotgun murders of coastal path walkers Peter and Gwenda Dixon.

The forensic budget is draining away but one potentially crucial item of clothing linked to the 1989 killings has yet to be found and tested. Wilkins and his team need a breakthrough.
Writer Nick Stevens’s drama, which ends tonight, is low key, but powerful, helped by a sturdy performance from Evans, and by Keith Allen at his most ferocious as Cooper.


A long-awaited forensic breakthrough gives Detective Steve Wilkins and his team the ammunition they need to finally arrest and prosecute John Cooper. Drama based on the true story of John Cooper, a serial killer who evaded justice for more than 20 years. Starring Luke Evans and Keith Allen. Last in the series.
