Steven Tennant in non-manic mode = good, very charismatic actor.

Steven Tennant in manic mode = Bleeugh.

Luckily, we seem to be getting the first option here.

Steven?

Better known as Stephen Tennant.

Or David...

I thought it was interesting so far.

Yeah, enjoyed that so far. Tennant really does look like Nilsen as well.

From what I have read/heard, Nielsen vered between a sympathetic and sad lonely character (no spoilers about what he did sometimes) and a manic narcissist who wanted everyone to know about him. Tennant is doing very well at that at the mo IMO.

An old friend of mine used to correspond with Nielsen in prison occasionally. I've no idea how it started but I believe it was when my friend was studying psychology, so maybe he thought he could gain an insight into something somewhere. He showed me boxes full of letters and when I asked what Nielsen was like, he replied, 'The most boring person I've ever written to.'

I skimmed through a few of the letters and they were all five or six neatly typed pages of Nielsen noting the exact serial numbers of the specific typewriter ribbons he wanted my friend to purchase for him if possible (he never did but the monthly requests continues for years). Or pages of detail regarding what weather had occurred that week, or which meals were available at each sitting that week. Very repetitive and unenlightening, all prison stamped and signed off 'Cheers, Des'.

I cycle past Neilsen's house regularly (I went past yesterday). The fascinating part of this for me is that a Muswell Hill avenue such as Cranley Gardens just doesn't fit with this sort of story.

I always wonder if any of the properties in Homes Under The Hammer might have had previous murders take place there.

I liked the way they portrayed his flat. I got a real sense of intense insularity and horror.

(I just discovered Crime Scene Cleaners on YouTube)

JohnIlly - 15 Sep 2020 15:55:44 (#13 of 66)

Have you made a note of their number?

I had a girlfriend whose parents lived in Cranley Gardens. That is my vaguely Dennis Neilson related story

This is being repeated twice in one night for some reason

Pinkgum - 15 Sep 2020 23:50:25 (#16 of 66)

It was yesterday too.

My Nielsen story is that my dad tested his shit for salmonella.

dottie30 - 16 Sep 2020 10:11:41 (#18 of 66)

I don't usually like things about serial killers (real or fictional). Tends to be too much uninformed psychobabble.

However, this has me gripped. Tennant is really good.

helenskywalker - 16 Sep 2020 10:22:19 (#19 of 66)

Good old Steve.

TheVoiceOfReason - 16 Sep 2020 10:33:39 (#20 of 66)

The curly haired chap playing the main policeman is very good, I’ve seen him in other stuff before too.
