Viewers Praise Luke Evans' Performance in 'Gripping' Serial Killer Drama Pembrokeshire Murders

The new year means plenty of new TV to sink our teeth into, with ITV's latest true crime series, The Pembrokeshire Murders, finally hitting screens after months of anticipation.

The three-part series sees The Hobbit star Luke Evans return to his native Wales as he stars as Detective Chief Superintendent Steve Wilkins - with the newly promoted and the ambitious police officer deciding to reopen two unsolved murder cases from the 1980s.

The true story garnered national attention in 2006 after witness reports and an artist's impression of the suspect led to the police service watching an episode of classic darts gameshow Bullseye, where the killer had previously starred as a contestant before eventually being apprehended.
