The Fall of the Essex Boys DVD
Starring Jay Brown, Peter Barrett, Simon Phillips, Tony Denham, Robert Cavanah, Nick Nevern, Kierston Wareing, Kate Magowan, Peter Woodward, Ewan Ross
Directed by Paul Tanter
Paul Tanter directs this crime drama based on the murder of three major Essex gangland figures in 1995.
When the bullet-ridden corpses of Tony Tucker (Jay Brown), Patrick Tate (Peter Barrett) and Craig Rolfe (Simon Phillips) were discovered in a Range Rover in Rettendon, a major criminal investigation was launched to find the culprits.
Though the trio's one-time associates Jack Whomes (Tony Denham) and Michael Steele (Robert Cavanah) were ultimately convicted of the crime, it was primarily on the evidence provided by another ex-associate Darren Nicholls (Nick Nevern), labelled by some as a 'supergrass' and whose evidence was called into question.
