Storyline

In January 2011 the police arrest Vincent Tabak, Chris's Dutch lodger, who has returned to the Netherlands after supplying evidence to incriminate Chris. He pleads guilty to Jo Yeates' manslaughter but is found guilty of her murder. Now out of the public eye Chris is keen for a quiet life but, encouraged by friends, engages the lawyer Louis Charalambous to sue the six tabloid papers that had vilified him. They are charged with contempt of court for suggesting that an untried suspect was a murderer and they are fined, with Chris receiving damages. With his hair cut short Chris is also a witness at the newly-commissioned Leveson Inquiry, investigating the dirty tricks employed by the gutter press, exonerating himself once and for all.
