What is The Pembrokeshire Murders about?

The three-part series delves into the case of serial killer John Cooper.

Two unsolved double murders from the 1980s cast a shadow over the work of the Dyfed Powys police force.

In 2006, newly promoted Detective Superintendent Steve Wilkins decided to reopen both cases.

Employing pioneering forensic methods, Wilkins and his handpicked team found microscopic DNA and fibres that potentially linked the murders to a string of burglaries committed in the 80s and 90s.

The perpetrator of those robberies was nearing the end of his prison sentence, but if Steve Wilkins was right, he was also a serial killer.

Could Steve and his team find enough forensic evidence to charge their suspect before he was released to potentially kill again?


Who is John Cooper?

The series is based on the real life crimes of Welsh serial killer John Cooper.

On 26 May 2011, Cooper was given a whole life order for the 1985 double murder of siblings Richard and Helen Thomas, and the 1989 double murder of Peter and Gwenda Dixon.

Cooper was known as the Bullseye killer as footage from the TV game show Bullseye, in which he appeared as a contestant in May 1989, was later used as evidence against him.
