The show is in many ways about the nature of evil and the obstacles that can stand in the way of truth.

Is It Any Good?
Detective work often comes down to seeing small details that no one else does. The Murders on White House Farm's mystery is driven by a policeman who makes a series of discoveries that his peers don't care enough to notice, and what appears to be a straightforward crime unravels into a much more complex and morally ambiguous morass. Similarly, the series itself feels detail-oriented in a way that most crime shows are not. Every aspect of the investigation is revealed clearly and thoughtfully, allowing the case to feel both complex and easy to follow. Crime dramas often seem interchangeable, but that attention to detail makes The Murders on White House Farm stand out.
