He said: ‘I should make it clear at this, I didn’t turn down an opportunity. I never made an approach. 

‘I decided to do that in conjunction with my director and the criminal psychologist I was working with as we thought it wasn’t beneficial to go down that route. There was so much footage I could use so it wasn’t beneficial.

Freddie said he felt a ‘duty’ to portray the story fairly out of respect to the real people involved.

He said: ‘You feel duty bound to get through as much of it as you possibly can as real people are involved here and there are surviving victims. 

‘I went to Colin Caffell’s memoir (Sheila Caffell’s ex-husband) and process of grief, and the murders on Whitehouse farm, I talked to criminal psychologists.’

Freddie added that Colin was ‘supportive’ of the production’s efforts to tell the story.

He said: ‘I think understandably Colin has been very resistant to something like this being made and probably still it’s retelling that moment for a public audience but he knew that this team were going to tell it right. 

‘He was so supportive to me personally and the entire groups so that they got it right.’
