TV Shipman (ITV-1 2002, James Bolam, James Hazledine) Published 2 years ago on April 8, 2017 Drama based on the true-life events of Dr Harold Shipman, a well-liked community GP from Hyde in greater Manchester who, over a period of many years, murdered many of his elderly patients by lethal injection – not with any element of mercy but simply if he thought he could get away with it. The story unfolds from the point where Shipman makes a clumsy attempt to forge the will of his latest victim in his favour rousing the suspicions of the deceased woman?s daughter and it follows the police investigation that led to his arrest and trial. The story, which was broadcast just two years after Shipman’s conviction caused no small amount of controversy as there was still an ongoing enquiry into just how many of his patients the Doctor may have actually killed. production details UK / ITV-1 – Yorkshire – Chameleon / 1×100 minute episode / Broadcast 9 July 2002 at 9:00pm Writer: Michael Eaton / Producer: Nick Finnis / Director: Roger Bamford cast James Bolam as Doctor Harold Shipman James Hazeldine as Detective Inspector Stan Egerton Alan Rothwell as Alan Massey Tony Melody as Len Fellows Elizabeth Bennett as Angela Woodruff Jonathan Coy as Detective Chief Superintendent Bernard Postles Gareth Thomas as Reverend Denis Thomas Demelza Randall as Debbie Bambroffe Siobhan Finneran as Kathleen Adanski John Flanagan as Jim King Deborah Norton as Debra King Wilfred Harrison as Mr King Sally Sheridan as Doctor Linda Reynolds Michael Stainton as John Shaw Olive Pendleton as Kathleen Grundy Veda Warwick as May Clarke Madelaine Evans as Doctor Susan Booth Jacqueline Pilton as Primrose Shipman Mary Macleod as Ivy Clare Kerrigan as Teenage Girl Irene Skillington as Bereaved Woman Ken Kitson as Inspector Dave Smith Paul Oldham as Paul Spencer Michael Wardle as John Green Mark Pepper as Ronald Pickford Colin Meredith as Brian Burgess Norman Mills as Detective Constable Dave O’Brien Martin Reeve as Detective Sergeant Bob Hampson Peter Henry Jones as Doctor Rutherford Mark Luigi as Sergeant Elwyn Jones), Carrie Davies as Detective Sergeant Sally Reid Malcolm Raeburn as Detective Chief Inspector Williams Paul Slack as Detective Sergeant John Walker Derek Hicks as Detective Inspector Steve Fullalove David Blair as Detective Constable Mark Denham Susan Cookson as Marie Snitynski Ken Bradshaw as Detective Sergeant Mark Warering Alison Burrows as Julie Evans Alan RothwellElizabeth BennettGareth ThomasITVJames BolamJames HazledineKen KitsonPaul OldhamRoger BamfordSiobhan FinneranTony MelodyTrue CrimeTVYorkshire Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes13 hours ago House Hunters: Green Acres In Agoura Hills (S153EP2 HGTV Mon 25 Feb 2019) Green Acres In Agoura Hills: A single mother wants to relocate to a home in the city of Agoura Hills,...
