Crime+Investigation® introduces The Murder Detective in a brand new True Crime Series

Former senior Surrey detective and criminologist Graham Hill – best known for his work on the Madeleine McCann investigation - fronts brand-new true crime series Murder Detective, which takes viewers inside some of the most complex and shocking cases of recent years.  

Murder Detective, produced by true crime specialists Peninsula Television, will see Hill bring his 30-year experience to provide a full 360-degree perspective on the inner workings, twists and turns of the police work in these fascinating cases.

Joined by the Senior Investigating Officer in each case, Hill takes us inside the investigations into the deaths of Sharon Birchwood (Dec, 2007), Jody Dobrowski (Oct, 2005), Adrian Murphy (June, 2019), Maheswaran Kaneshan (Jan, 2004) and Dean Mayley (Feb, 2014) to uncover the challenges and hardships faced by police and loved ones of the victims, and the perseverance and expertise involved in bringing the perpetrators to justice.

In each episode Hill pairs his detective methodology with forensic science and insider knowledge to provide true-crime fanatics with his expert understanding of how the cases were finally cracked.   The episodes will also include key witness testimonies, brand-new interviews, forensic and psychological experts, and archive footage, taking viewers into the investigation to see modern crime-solving techniques at work.   

Commenting on the show, Graham Hill said: “The cases covered in the series are fascinating examples of the challenges faced by law enforcement agencies in bringing ruthless and cunning perpetrators to justice. In the series we aim to bring viewers into the heart of the murder investigations, so they can follow the trials and tribulations faced by the police and the relatives of the victims, every step of the way.” 

Murder Detective premieres on Crime+Investigation Play from 16th October, with all episodes available on the brand-new streaming service. The series will air weekly on Crime+Investigation, Sundays at 9pm.
