The Thief, His Wife and the Canoe.. !!
It is based on a true story of a man who faked his death to claim the insurance..


Brilliant acting.. Wonderful characters...
What a ghastly man.. 
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

FLOUNCER3

not about John Stonehouse is it?

Scrumpy




No FLOUNCER3 it is not.. John Stonehouse was many years before..
It is about John and Anne Darwin who staged a canoeing accident in order to claim the life insurance..

Do you know if that was that a big story at the time? The only reason I ask is because it sort of rings a bell. Perhaps I'm not as senile as I thought  :smiley:

It's good to moan.

I intend to watch it. Eddie Marsan's one of my favourite actors.

The download from Zoony's video emporium has what I'm guessing is a single episode documentary plus a 4 episode docudrama.

Did others get the same and if so is there a recommended viewing sequence?

Thanks.  Caught 15 years back so I suppose I should remember.

I watched the documentary one. Incredible story which I do recall from the news at the time. Will probably start on the mini series this evening.
