IRELAND: Des Starring David Tennant Begins On Virgin Media One In October


 

ITV's gripping true crime drama Des, starring David Tennant as UK serial killer Dennis Nilsen, launches on Virgin Media One in Ireland next month. The three-part series begins on Monday 5th October from 10.00pm. The episode is followed at 11.00pm by the documentary The Real 'Des': The Dennis Nilsen Story, which is narrated by David Tennant. 

David Tennant stars as notorious serial killer Dennis Nilsen in the series based on Brian Masters’ book Killing For Company. In February 1983, Detective Chief Inspector Peter Jay is called to a house in Cranley Gardens, North London, where he discovers the drains clogged with rotting human flesh. But the extent of this grisly discovery only becomes apparent when the culprit returns from work and a search of his flat is undertaken. Dennis ‘Des’ Nilsen, apparently an ordinary civil servant, shows officers further human remains stashed around his home and freely admits to the police that it's not just one or two bodies, but as many as 15 or 16. As the police try to secure a conviction and identify the victims from scant DNA evidence, biographer Brian Masters attempts to understand why. A game of chess with Des begins, and while Brian may be exhilarated by his newest subject, he's unaware what this new obsession could do to his life. Des also stars Daniel Mays, Jason Watkins and Barry Ward.
