White House Farm tells the story of a family who were all murdered in a mass shooting back in the mid-1980s. The chilling six-parter will air weekly on ITV but the first instalment left viewers emotional this evening after certain moments, in particular, left them “heartbroken”.
The drama, which features a star-studded cast including Line of Duty’s Stephen Graham, Game of Thrones' Mark Addy and Waterloo Road’s Amanda Burton premiered on ITV tonight (January 8), with viewers hooked on the tragic drama series.
The six-parter tells the story of the aftermath of the mass shooting, in which Jeremy Bamber (played by Freddie Fox) was the only surviving member of the immediate family.
He insisted he had been at his home a few miles away when the shooting occurred.
