Bamber Reflects

Jeremy Bamber slams ITV’s ‘White House Farm’ drama as “nonsense” and thanks those who’ve shared “positive news” about his case

In a recent blog post Jeremy Bamber – a man who continues to deny killing five of his relatives– has shared his views about ITV’s recent dramatisation of what happened at White House Farm in in August 1985.

Aside from thanking the Daily Star, Mirror and Guardian for featuring “really positive things about the case and given us a platform to publicly release new evidence,” Bamber remarked:

“I am so sorry that people had to watch such nonsense, because for some odd reason no one was portrayed in a positive way from what I have been told. I did see the adverts and felt embarrassed by how badly Freddie Fox played me, and that my friends and supporters were put in a position of having to defend me. I am not now or have ever been anything like the drama portrayed me. But, it’s not me that matters, it is the fact that mum and dad were so misrepresented by the way I was portrayed.”

“ITV and Carol Ann Lee’s book made out that Sheila and I were jealous of each other because mum and dad had brought us up differently and treated us differently. One of the fanciful scenarios they put forward was that I was jealous of Sheila having a lovely flat in Maida Vale. This was not true as mum and dad gave me a house in Goldhanger. More to the point was that Sheila always allowed me to stay at her flat if I wanted to. I know that others looking in on our lives could feel envious, and so assumed that Sheila and I might feel the same. Sheila and I did not, because mum and dad made sure that as we were growing up, that we were grateful for our good fortune, because they knew that no one likes people who are boastful. So, the ITV drama insulted my mum and dad without even thinking about it, simply by portraying me as they did. Shocking, not factual, untruthful misrepresentation.”

  1. This case needs to be reopened urgently. Too many errors by Essex Police – a force known for their corruption at that time.

  2. Eric is absolutely correct insofar the White House Farm murders, more so Jeremy Bamber, should be re-investigated. Essex police, particularly the Serious Crimes Unit/s, were as corrupt as hell in the 1980’s and ‘90’s, as found some 10 years later with the infamous Rettendon Murders – or as it was better known, ‘three men murdered in a Range Rover’. That decade, 85-95, was particularly violent in Essex and if reports are to be believed the SCU were part of the very problems they were meant to investigate. This said, the passage of time has seen numerous films about the Rettendon Murders and, more recently, the White House Farm TV documentary, in which I strongly believe the facts of both these Essex murder cases have now been clouded by drama that finding the truth in each, is now that little bit more difficult.
