The Investigator: A British Crime Story


Former police detective and renowned criminologist and investigator Mark Williams-Thomas proves that truth can be far more compelling than fiction in this explosive new crime series. Over four episodes, combining documentary and drama, Williams-Thomas re-examines a truly chilling murder case that has baffled police detectives for more than 30 years. At the heart of this shocking story of murder, fraud, sexual deviancy and even a faked death, lies a daughter’s agonising search for justice after the disappearance of her mother in 1985. For three decades she’s been seeking answers and this is her final hope of getting the closure she and her family so desperately deserve. With a dogged determination to get to the truth, Williams-Thomas undertakes a forensic re- examination of the case, unravelling a captivating story that will keep audiences engrossed from the very start until its chilling climax.
