The Children is a 3 part mini-series starring Kevin Whately about a mischievous  young girl called Emily, who is ultimately killed. Cameron (Whately) is her step-father and in flashbacks leading up to her death, he and all the other members of this dysfunctional family are shown placed at the scene, therefore any one of them could be responsible, but  only one of them is..

There is a twist to this strange tale though, as all the suspects are seen killing her . That is, all except for one of them.

At the end, Emily’s dad’s girlfriend, Natasha, the only character not seen killing the young girl, is seen sobbing and saying “I’m sorry”.

Apparently nothing is proved,  but although frustrating, the whole point of the programme is that with everyone bickering between themselves, Emily had become a nuisance to everybody as so often happens when families split. Worth a watch, but not if you need to know ‘Whodunnit!”…….

The cast is rounded out by, Lesley Sharp, Geraldine Somerville and Ian Puleston-Davies, a tense and compelling thriller written by Lucy Gannon.
