So, get ready to mark your calendars because on September 25th, a new drama,”The Long Shadow” will debut on ITV and ITVX.

The series details the five-year manhunt for the serial killer Peter Sutcliffe, commonly referred to as The Yorkshire Ripper. While the Yorkshire Ripper’s story has been told on television before, “The Long Shadow” takes a different approach. This drama puts Sutcliffe’s victims – the women who tragically lost their lives, those who survived, and their families – front and centre. It’s a refreshing difference from previous portrayals, shining light on the untold stories of those affected by these crimes.
This series fearlessly dives into the past, showing us how women were treated and the unfairness they faced. It doesn’t hold back when it comes to revealing how the police mistreated sex workers and the victim’s families. “The Long Shadow” is a gripping story about fairness and unfairness, highlighting the strength of those who went through it all. Make sure to mark your calendars for this important series!
