L’article original :
A top detective who brought depraved killer Benjamin Field to justice has revealed how the sadist whose brutal murder of a gay lecturer is the subject of a new BBC drama kept a diary about all the cruel things he did to his victims.
DCI Mark Glover was part of the unit that investigated ‘cold and calculated’ Field over the mysterious deaths of two retirees including Peter Farquhar in Maids Moreton, Buckinghamshire, in 2015.
Field, 32, duped Mr Farquhar, 69, into changing his will and then tried to make his death look like accident or suicide.
He was also accused of plotting to kill 83-year-old Ann Moore-Martin, an ex-headmistress, but was found not guilty – although he did admit attempting to defraud her.
Police became involved in Mr Farquhar’s death after Ms Moore-Martin died, and realised that Field was implicated in both.
Officers later found a staggering trove of notes relating to both Ms Moore-Martin and Mr Farquhar which showed how Field seduced Ms Moore-Martin and she gave him thousands of pounds – which he claimed he needed to help his brother.
The killer’s heinous crimes are currently being dramatised in BBC show the Sixth Commandment, starring Timothy Spall, Anne Reid and Jonathan Aris.
DCI Glover said: ‘[His notes were] a bit of everything. It wasn’t in chronological order like most diaries – it was more like a notebook. They were his thoughts, ideas, what he had done – all those kinds of things. The amount of material we seized in house searches was phenomenal. It’s not just what I call physical material, but digital material.
‘Not only did Ben keep diaries himself but he typed everything out on computers so we had a mass of digital information to download and go through.’

DCI Glover, a former officer with Thames Valley Police, has revealed Field’s case was different to the other murders he probed during his 30-year career.
He said: ‘This case was very different in that in most murders, you know what has happened – you just have to prove it.
‘But, in this case, you had a hypothesis as to what had happened, but no proper evidence at that time to support it.
‘You had a feeling but not all the evidence to back it up. It was frightening if our hypothesis was correct.’
Mr Farquhar’s 2015 death was initially thought to be an accident or suicide, and Field – with whom he was in a relationship – was not suspected.
But police became involved after the death of Ms Moore-Martin – and realised via his notes that Field was implicated in both.

Field was arrested in 2019 – and DCI Glover said it became clear the killer was a narcissist.
He said: ‘We called it the « Ben Field roadshow ». Whatever he did, he tried to take control and dominate.
‘He was softly spoken and polite, and all the things that people found attractive about him.
‘It was all about him trying to take control of the situation and us trying to take the control away from him and controlling him in some way.’
Anne Moore-Martin, 83, was Field’s second victim. She too was seduced by the criminal. She is portrayed in the drama by Anne Reid, 88

Field was eventually convicted and jailed.
A court heard he carried out a sustained ‘gaslighting’ plot aimed at making Mr Farquhar question his sanity.
The victim’s drinks were topped up with bioethanol and poteen, a high strength Irish alcohol, and his food was laced with drugs.
Jurors were also told Field ‘suffocated’ Farquhar when he was too weak to resist – killing him.
Ms Moore-Martin was found to have died of natural causes, but Field had defrauded her.
Despite devoting months to case, DCI Glover said the investigating team did not celebrate when Field was sent down.
He retired in May 2018 in the midst of the investigation, but returned as a civilian investigator.
DCI Glover said: ‘It is funny. You are always relieved to get the conviction and that the jury has agreed with you.
‘People often think you go out and party to celebrate but you don’t you feel quite flat after it.
‘There aren’t any winners really, Ben Field has gone to prison for 36 years but there are two families who are devastated by it.
‘Two deceased people, one of which he was found guilty of murdering. It is good to get the conviction but a very strange feeling afterwards.’
Mr Farquhar, who had struggled with his sexuality for years, had taught English at the private Manchester Grammar School before moving to the prestigious Stowe in 1983. He was head of English there for 21 years, before deciding to retire in 2004 so he could write novels. Left: Spall as the English teacher

The former detective praised the details of the Sixth Commandment’s production and says he hopes the series educates the public about the warning signs of manipulative and controlling behaviour.
He said: ‘The biggest thing about it is education because everybody thinks that elderly people are vulnerable through physical or mental health.
‘Whereas actually, this highlights that they can be lonely for a whole load of reasons.
‘Sexual orientation, religion, all those kinds of things can make people vulnerable as well.
‘I really hope and like to think that came through and people are sat at home thinking about their own relatives and things like that.
‘Ben was 26 when he was in a relationship with Ann who was 83.
If there are people at home sat at home thinking about relationships that they know of and start questioning it and some good comes of it then that’s a positive.’
