This sensitive, respectful, and very human BBC mini-series dramatises the events that took place in Ipswich in December 2006, when five young, drug-addicted prostitutes were murdered in a short space of time, concentrating on the day-to-day lives of the girls and the police investigation, with (thankfully) no time at all given to the actual killings themselves.
