Speaking to her co-stars, Janet said: “For it to work, the lead character has got to have depth to them. They’ve got to have faults.

“One of the problems I had with it, is that the leading man – played by Luke Evans – had all the charisma of an ironing board. He was wooden.”

Furthermore, she continued: “Too many dramas – not necessarily this one as it’s based on real life – focus on serial killers that target women.”

However, ITV viewers failed to agree with Janet as one said: “Not sure what she’d know about charisma.”

What happened at the end of The Pembrokeshire Murders?

In the dramatic finale episode, John Cooper bellowed to the court as the jury convicted him and officers led him away.

He told his dad he had put aside plans to go to Sixth Form or pursue a football career – and was instead considering joining the police.

Meanwhile, during the episode, the real-life Steve Wilkins made a cameo as he sat in the courtroom.
