Most cases take a year or even longer to be heard.  

I dare say they needed to stage their show trial before people forgot who she was.

Crime - Arrest - Trial - Conviction - Sentence (life).

Has another case ever anywhere been as quick as that?

Another one that seems to like centre stage

Note - mother is not smiling this time but looking up into the sky.

I don't think the time between the crime and the court case is unreasonable,  Mairs was arrested at the time there was no need for an investigation etc

I'm long in the tooth enough to remember when there was capital punishment in the U K and the time between the murder and the execution of the guilty person was often very short.

The time spans in the still controversial cases of Derek Bentley, Ruth Ellis and Edith Thompson and Frederick Bywaters were all three months, give or take a few days.

That's true. I forgot about speckled Jim.

Has anyone else watched the programme yet?

I don't think that I have any more doubts that the right person was arrested and convicted for the crime.

It was a bit irritating that Jo was portrayed as an absolute saint, absolutely perfect. Nobody is! The bit about asking for thousands of unaccompanied children to be allowed in made me cringe. Most of them are men in their 20s pretending to be teenagers!
