Based on a tragic case that shocked Britain, this true crime drama examines the investigation of school assistant Maxine Carr and her caretaker fiancé Ian Huntley.
Maxine on Prime Video is a three-part drama about the Soham murders 20 years ago, which feel merely utterly pointless.
It is ostensibly about the part Maxine Carr played in covering up the deaths of 10-year-old best friends Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells.
She was a teaching assistant in their class and the fiancee of Ian Huntley, a school caretaker, who lured them into his home when they were on their way to buy sweets and took both their lives.
Brian Farmer, the local journalist who is the first to become suspicious of Huntley.
The headteacher goes back over the file containing Huntley’s job application and realizes that the required background checks, which would have shown something of his history of physical and sexual violence towards women and underage girls, were never done.

Maxine on Amazon Prime Video Trivia
Huntley’s red Ford Fiesta has a fake registration J112 YR5G which does not conform to any of the three formats that have been used in the UK: ABC 123D (1963-1984), A123 BCD (1984-2001) or AB12 CDE (2001-present).
This was probably done to avoid any possible similarity between his registration and a real-life one.
Maxine Carr was sentenced to 3 years and 6 months in prison. She served half of her sentence and was released in May 2004.
Ian Huntley later claimed Maxine lied about her knowledge of the crimes. Something she denied.
Upon her release from prison, Maxine Carr was given a new identity after the High Court granted a Lifetime Anonymity Order.
Newspaper reports suggest she has since married and had a child.
