Rillington Place

Show generally

Factual error: With two exceptions, all the policemen shown in both 1949 and 1953 are wearing the old-fashioned tunics with high, closed collars. The Metropolitan Police adopted the more modern open-necked tunic with collar and tie in 1948, and this is shown worn by the policeman who visits Christie and by the officer who arrests him.

Factual error: The barristers address the judge as "Your Honour." High Court Judges like Mr Justice Lewis are addressed as "My Lord."

Factual error: The wigs in the courtroom scenes are not correct. The barristers' wigs are too full and the judges are wearing the shoulder-length wigs only worn on ceremonial occasions; for normal court work they have worn similar wigs to barristers since the 1840s.
