Leanne Taylor seemed like the perfect nanny; personable, warm, gentle and capable – but capable of murdering two babies?
Is she a naïve charmer or a ruthless manipulator?
Leanne’s (Sinead Matthews) multiple identities are revealed in this taut and tense concluding part of Lynda La Plante’s Trial and Retribution: Curriculum Vitae.
The investigation team discover Leanne is in fact called Rachel Burns and has a series of identity thefts in her past.
With Rachel in custody, DCS Mike Walker (David Hayman) and DCI Roisin Connor) debate the controversial decision to exhume the body of baby Joe Casper, allegedly suffocated by Rachel.
The baby’s mother, Gina Casper (Gillian Kearney), reluctantly agrees but her husband Lee (Paul Hilton) argues against exhumation and even offers to be a character witness for Rachel.
His testimony backfires though when Rachel reveals they had a torrid affair.
The prosecution case is looking thin when the defence start questioning the mental health of the mother of the second victim, baby Poppy.
The case could rest on the investigation team locating a mini-cab driver but then Rachel decides to change her testimony…again!
