Craven Series 6: Family Man

Created and Written by Amelia Bullmore

A Red Production Produced by Savvy Productions

Episode 1

The Crime Drama series Craven returns for a 6th series starring Maxine Peake as DCI Craven.

"Right. I have to tell this one. You won't want to hear it but don't shrink away. We'd all like to. I'd read about similar cases of course but I'd never worked on one. You'd have to be a pretty stupid police officer not to wonder if one will come your way. It came our way two days before Christmas. A man killed his children. We knew who, very early on. This isn't about that. It's about why."

Adam Cook pleads not guilty to murdering his children. Briony Cook must take to the stand.

Craven Series 6 - Episode 5

It's the week of the court case

"Adam Cook was charged with the murders of his three children on the 27th of December and remanded in custody the following day. Our Prosecution Barrister was Alice Thompson, QC. She's good. She looks like she washes with soap and water and people trust her."

And Craven wants him to face up to what he has done.

"I want his wife to hear why he did it 'cause she's torturing herself that she made him flip and I think a woman should be free to change her mind about a man without having her children killed. I want the public to hear it."

The team put a strong prosecution together, but their case is more than matched by the brilliant Douglas Farino.
