Vil­lain­ous Richard Hill­man

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - TELEVISION -

Five times mar­ried Gail is Cor­rie’s most un­lucky in love char­ac­ter. But never did she make a worse de­ci­sion than when she mar­ried se­rial killer Richard Hill­man. Smooth-talk­ing Richard – dubbed by Gail as “Nor­man Bates with a brief­case” - went on a mur­der­ous spree, killing hair­dresser and new mum Max­ine Pea­cock and his ex-wife Pa­tri­cia Hill­man dur­ing his reign of ter­ror from 2001 to 2003. He was fi­nally ex­posed by Gail and at­tempted to gas his fam­ily in­side a car be­fore crash­ing it into the canal where he died. It seemed like the Platt fam­ily was fi­nally free of the mad­man once and for all. But not so: evil Richard is set to make a re-ap­pear­ance in up­com­ing Cor­rie episodes, haunt­ing Gail af­ter she pays a visit to a clair­voy­ant.
