Full Episode

Described as 'violent and dangerous', Damien Bendall wormed his way into the life of new girlfriend Terri Harris. As their relationship progressed, so too did his acts of violence against Terri and her two children. Despite this, Bendall's 'overworked and under-qualified' probation officers refused to bar him from Terri and her family, and so, in 2021, the unthinkable happened. With testimony from those closest to each case, #DEAD2ME will explore the stories of ten couples from all over Britain whose relationships were borne out of the digital age. While these relationships started promisingly enough, they would all take a turn for the tragic, and in each case a running commentary provided by their digital dialogue and postings reveals how and why.
