Didn't quite understand why some of them got manslaughter and some of them murder?

They either all intended to kill the guy, or they didn't. But I found it quite gripping, the best in a while. Was a bit surpised the main protagonist didn't leap once bailed.
I guess their defence successfully argued that the main intent was robbery and the one who carried the knife made that premeditated in the jury's eyes. Perhaps the guy didn't jump bail as thought they had nothing on him, He got arrested for suspicion of murder, Interviewed and bailed quite quickly, Unlike the others who were held for longer before they were charged.

I think one take away from it - if you intend to do any crime, make sure you have a burner phone. Then burn all your clothes (you wore at the time), including £1,500 jackets.

Mind, Asking for a vacuum cleaner at a petrol station at 5am was pushing it a bit too far.

I think the fact he had a burner phone and turned it off would have been another argument for the murder charge rather than manslaughter along with taking a knife. He seemed much more aware than the others and was done by the vanity of the coat. If there is a next time for him I guess he might hit Primark for an outfit he can more cheaply burn. No surprise the woman talked after being charged for murder.

Yeah, but if you really want to kill someone with a knife, a stab to the heart or vital organs usually works a whole lot better.

Game over for Sky’s Soccer AM at the end of the season. First broadcast in 1995/96.

Never a fan of it myself. Just the occasional watch over the years.

I was just pointing out how the prosecution would have framed it. The jury obviously went for that argument.

'twas never the same after Lovejoy left. I was a fan of Hells Bells mind, but it was their double act that did it for me.

22nd March 1982

Police on BBC1 was a 12 part documentary set around Reading Police Station. Filmed in 1980/81. The forerunner to the many fly on the wall productions following various UK Police Forces.
A episode called A Case of Rape lead to a huge row from Women’s groups & criticism in parliament about the treatment of a rape victim. This lead to wholesale changes in how the Police dealt with the crime. Thames Valley Police were one of the first Forces to have a dedicated team of female officers in a sexual offences unit after the episode was aired.
