Synopsis[edit]

This synopsis is utterly confusing and incomplete. What's all this about Beryl commenting on a garden?

I seem to recall that the movie was based on a real life serial killer case that contributed to the abolishing of the death penalty in the UK. Sojambi Pinola (talk) 07:44, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

I replaced the entry but this still needs a lot of work. Sojambi Pinola (talk) 07:55, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Release date[edit]

According to IMDB's entry, this film was first released in the UK in 1971, not 1970 as is listed in this article. Wcp07 (talk) 06:47, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Unsupported text removal[edit]

I have deleted a large amount of uncited and POV text, which repeats numerous untruths about the case. For example, Evans is named as "a criminal and a liar". He had no criminal convictions at the time of the trial and many of his "lies" were in fact police inventions, as Ludovic Kennedy showed in his book on the case. If the contributor wants to include a section on errors in the film, then go ahead with citations from the known standard works on the case. This is not an "alleged" miscarriage of justice but one recognised by the Crown and experts in the field. Peterlewis (talk) 10:52, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

This could be nitpicking, but I noticed one line where Christie described carbon monoxide as CO2, when this is actually the formula for carbon dioxide. Was this a mistake on the scriptwriter's part, or did deliberately put a scientific mistake into Christie's mouth, so that alert viewers would realize he was a quack?
