DES, Ep 3 - FINALE

Reeling from Des' change in plea, Jay and the police throw themselves into proving premeditation. If they can show the court that Des was undoubtedly of sound mind when he committed his crimes, he will go down and never be released. If they fail, Des could get a cushier sentence on diminished responsibility and effectively escape justice. As the trial begins and the defense start to tear strips off key witnesses, Jay and his team are shocked by just how flimsy their case against Nilsen seems.

DESCRIPTION:
(from Sundance Now's web site, August 2020) Starring David Tennant, Des is a true-crime drama focusing on one of the most infamous serial killers in UK history – Dennis Nilsen. Known as the ‘kindly killer’, Nilsen was a local civil servant who spent five years murdering boys and young men he met on the streets of Soho from 1978 to 1983. He would meet and befriend these men before offering them food or lodgings for the evening back at his North London flat. His victims were often homeless or living off grid, having slipped through the cracks of 1980s society and were therefore welcoming of this stranger’s apparent generosity. When he was finally caught on 9 February 1983, Nilsen had murdered a total of fifteen men over a period of five years, making him Britain’s most prolific serial killer of the time.
