Viewers Praise Luke Evans' Performance in 'Gripping' Serial Killer Drama Pembrokeshire Murders
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.
And fans are already raving about the series, with many taking to Twitter to praise Luke's powerful performance as the brooding detective.
"Luke Evans is a really good actor," wrote one fan. "He is seriously underrated."
