The Lost Hon­our Of Christo­pher Jef­feries

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - YOUR TV WEEK -

Ja­son Watkins (who plays store man­ager Gavin in Trol­lied) gives a won­der­fully con­vinc­ing per­for­mance in this fact-based, two-part drama. He plays re­tired teacher Christo­pher Jef­feries, whose quiet life in Bris­tol was turned up­side down in 2010 when his young ten­ant, Joanna Yeates, went miss­ing. After her body was found, the po­lice seized upon Jef­feries as a mur­der sus­pect, de­spite the lack of ev­i­dence, and his life be­came a night­mare. Watkins’s per­for­mance makes it all too easy to see why the in­no­cent Jef­feries’ be­hav­iour could have been viewed as sus­pi­cious. Wed­nes­day, Thurs­day, 9pm, ITV. Nigel An­drew
