In 1941 Reg and Ethel Christie move into a dilapidated house in Notting Hill, 10, Rillington Place. Ethel is puzzled that Christie, a special constable, spends so many nights away from home but believes he is above being bribed for special perks. However she is irate to find him in pubs with other women but forgives him and refuses to leave him despite his domestic violence towards her. She still has her suspicions about his nocturnal activities, particularly when a female acquaintance goes missing. Seven years later the Christies welcome a young couple, Beryl and Timothy Evans as their lodgers at Rillington Place.

Just as the Evanses arrive, Tim says the word 'privacy' in a sentence in US English (prie-vacy) instead of UK English (priv-vacy) This could happen these days due to US influence via TV and films but not back then just after the Second World War. Probably done deliberately by the director to appease US viewers who may not 'get' 'priv-vacy' See more
