Hosted and curated by one of the UK’s best-known journalists, Killer Britain with Dermot Murnaghan explores British murder stories filled with detective intrigue and chilling storylines.
For this series, Dermot Murnaghan will be joined by former Detective Chief Inspector of the Metropolitan Police, Clive Driscoll, best known for securing the convictions for the murder of South London teenager Stephen Lawrence.
In each episode, Dermot recounts a case he has reported on or followed at close quarters. The five murder stories are told with archive footage and key interviews from those closest to the case, including family members of the victims and the investigating officers who were first at the scene.
In this series, Dermot will guide viewers through crimes which shook local communities throughout Britain to their core: the gangland slaying of Salford’s ‘Mr Big’, Paul Massey in July 2015; the devastating Cumbria shootings of June 2010; the callous murder of vulnerable young adult Phillip Nicholson, in Boscombe, Dorset, in 2015, recorded on a mobile phone; the dramatic twists and turns of the murders of Carol Jarvis, in West Lothian in 2009 and Jessica Patel in Middlesbrough in May 2018.
The five-part series will air across one week on Crime + Investigation with each weeknight highlighting one of these cases which gripped the nation in fear until the killer was brought to justice.
