As a streaming-era offering, the series is a failure.

Men will continue to stalk and kill women as long as they have the chance-you don't need to watch a pulpy, overwrought television show to figure that out.

    It's not easy to get through bc it's not presented in a manner that's suspenseful (with all due respect to the victims). I think it would've gone much better had he used a host instead of doing most of the talking himself. His voice just puts you to sleep. But it's a good investigation into the unsolved murders.

    Frustrating series to watch. Presenter takes information already known to the Police/press/statements and presents them as his own discoveries to camera. Information is repeated over and over, dragging out the episodes unnecessarily. Nicely shot, but we want substance over style. It also gives these poor families false hope this investigator will uncover new evidence hoping to lead them to their lost ones, yet it dangerously exploits their stories for our entertainment. Disappointing. Oh and the polyester wigs on the actors are awful & distracting.

    ***SPOILERS BELOW*** This show has everything that it needs to be great. Strong narrative, great cinematography and good development. Sadly, it falls very short for one critical reason: Mark Williams-Thomas (MWT) completely botches the investigation of Angus Sinclair - which is potentially unsurprising, because this show unintentionally becomes a documentary of the complete incompetence of UK homicide police in the 70s, 80s and 90s. In any investigation, you must keep your witnesses sterilised from your evidence, your suspect and your theory. MWT ignores this completely and colours the evidence given by key witnesses by showing them the suspect's vehicle/picture and asking if it's the vehicle/person that they saw. This season can be used as evidence against the prosecution, making it the exact opposite of what it intends to be. Good film making, but it needs a better investigator who can get the basics right.

    It was pretty interesting...until we were left hanging with no more episodes and it took us 15 minutes to realize, there were no more episodes. Not bothering with season 1.
