USA & CANADA: David Tennant Drama Des Continues On Sundance Now


David Tennant's gripping true crime drama Des continues on Sundance Now in the USA and Canada with the second episode available to stream from today. The three-part series aired on ITV in the UK last month to almost universal acclaim and netting the channel its biggest drama ratings this year. Also starring Daniel Mays and Jason Watkins, Des documents the arrest and trial of Dennis Nilsen, one of the UK's most notorious serial killers. Civil servant Nilsen encouraged at least a dozen vulnerable young men and boys back to his flats where he murdered them before dismembering their bodies for disposal. 

Sundance Now is a subscription streaming service available via iOS, Apple TV, Android, Roku, Chromecast or the web at a cost of $6.99 a month or $59.99 for an annual membership. A free seven-day trial is also available. To sign up click here.  

Episode 2

With limited resources, Jay and the police continue to dig into Nilsen’s memories in an effort to identify and convict him for the murder of every one of his victims. But when Des suddenly withdraws his cooperation and stops talking to the police, Jay fears justice will be lost.
Meanwhile, Des confides increasingly in Brian, which proves a unique obstacle for Jay, who has never had to deal with a criminal biographer before. As Brian’s sessions give Des the opportunity to analyse and confront the possible reasons for his crimes, he considers the prospect that he may not be guilty of murder after all.
Through ingenious detective work, Jay’s team manage to identify six victims, yet Jay is deeply frustrated as Nilsen will escape justice for the majority of his crimes. At the pre-trial hearing, Nilsen shockingly pleads not guilty. Brian is dumbfounded that he might be partly responsible for this change of heart, while Jay is devastated that having feared he might not get justice for the nine victims they haven’t identified, now he might not even get justice for the six they have.
