The Secret is set to be the latest television crime drama that will be talked about by everyone. Eventually the pair's affair was exposed and they both swore an end to it in front of the congregation of their church, but that wasn't the end of it. Moving Lesley's body into the boot of his car, the evil dentist then drove over to Hazel's house where she had already drugged her husband Trevor with tranquilizers in a sandwich.
He was also accused of drugging and sexually assaulting female patients, and lost his money by investing in a strange scheme involving recovering Japanese gold.
Howell is serving life imprisonment for his crimes, while Hazel is currently serving an 18-year sentence and has so far launched three appeals.
Based on the so-called Castlerock Suicides, the true story behind these horrifying murders have been laid bare in this new ITV drama starring James Nesbitt . As the strict religious environment they lived in didn't allow divorce, the pair hatched a deadly plan to kill their respective spouses so they could be together. Policeman Trevor also woke up as he was being murdered, but Howell held him down until he died.

The police statement he gave, confessing all, caused a media storm, though Hazel insisted she had been manipulated into helping. Her current husband and children still believe she is innocent, despite the conviction, and now the crime has been turned into a four-part drama for ITV. Set in the Baptist community in Coleraine in Northern Ireland, it centres around the deadly affair between dentist Colin Howell and Sunday school teacher Hazel Buchanan , but far from being a work of fiction, it is all based on a true story. Howell planned to make the deaths look like suicide and in 1991 wrote a letter to Hazel saying it was to be their 'secret'.
The evil duo then moved their victims' bodies into a car and drove them to a seaside village five miles away where they arranged the bodies and made it look like a double suicide. At the court case, Howell gave damning evidence for both of them and ensured they both went to prison for murder under the joint enterprise law.
Sick Howell killed Lesley first by gassing her with a hosepipe carrying the car fumes going straight into her mouth, with him holding down his struggling wife until she died, as their young son slept nearby.
Some time earlier when the affair was exposed, a devastated Lesley had written a letter professing her intent to kill herself, and Howell had found it.

Though according to some reports, the pair even began sleeping together in Colin's dental surgery chair. With the police convinced, no investigation followed, and the affair continued for a further six years. They eventually split with Howell marrying another woman and eventually having five more children with her, while Hazel married another police officer.
Eventually the guilt appeared to catch up to Howell, and after the death of his son Matthew after an accident abroad, he eventually confessed to his crimes.
