How many watched the three part series of Rillington Place?

Having watched the original film “10 Rillington Place” (several times) where Timothy Evans was played brilliantly by John Hurt and an equal performance by Richard Attenborough as Christie, I found it difficult to squeeze the same out of this series although Tim Roth played Christie very well and gave me the creeps.

The one thing I found very strange was that when Evans was in Wales he talked with a Welsh accent and when in London he talked like a barrow boy, what was that all that about.
