The Sixth Commandment S1

In The Sixth Commandment, a meeting between an inspiring teacher and a charismatic student sets the stage for one of the most complex criminal cases in recent memory – the gaslighting and deaths of Peter Farquhar and Ann Moore-Martin in the Buckinghamshire village of Maids Moreton – and the extraordinary events that unfolded over the following years.

Multiple-BAFTA nominee Timothy Spall (Wicked Little Letters, Mr Turner, and Spencer) and Éanna Hardwicke (Normal People) co-star, opposite the likes of two-time BAFTA nominees Anne Reid (Sanditon, Last Tango in Halifax) and Sheila Hancock (Unforgotten, A Discovery of Witches, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas). 

The four-part BBC series has an 89% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with Irish Independent calling it, “Not just a great true-crime drama – one of the best of the year in any genre.”

The Sixth Commandment was just named Best Limited Drama at the 2024 BAFTAs, with Timothy Spall winning Leading Actor.
