What did I get myself into, and why am I watching this crazy true story about a couple who tortured and murdered their French nanny and then burnt her body in the back garden of their south west London home?
I don't know, but it's 2AM and I couldn't turn it off.
Had to see if they got their comeuppance.
English law is really weak, so the short answer is no.
The moral of the story, however, is simple: Check on your children, especially if they're in another country and haven't called you back in weeks!
