What Is Des About?
Directed by Lewis Arnold (Dark Money) and written by Luke Neal and Kelly Jones, Des is produced by all3media group's New Pictures (Catherine the Great, The Missing) in association with all3media international for ITV. Des is based on material from the book Killing for Company by Brian Masters.
DES is a true-crime drama focusing on one of the most infamous criminal cases in UK history - DENNIS NILSEN. Known as the 'kindly killer', Nilsen (David Tennant, Good Omens, Broadchurch) was a local civil servant who spent five years murdering boys and young men he met on the streets of London's Soho from 1978 to 1983. He would meet and befriend these men before offering them food or lodgings for the evening back at his North London flat. His victims were often homeless or living off grid, having slipped through the cracks of 1980s British society and were therefore welcoming of this stranger's apparent generosity. When he was finally caught on 9 February 1983, Nilsen had murdered a total of fifteen men over a period of five years, making him Britain's most prolific serial killer of the time.
'Des' previously aired on Sundance Now network in the US. Last episode of the series aired on October 29, 2020.
