He picked them off one by one - Murdertown


In 1966, the small town of Beenham was rocked by the horrific murder of a local caretaker. Despite their fear, the town's people could not believe anyone from Beenham could have been involved. But when two school girls are found brutally killed, the town quickly turned on itself. Murdertown returns for its fifth season, this time hosted by award-winning actress Emilia Fox. In each episode, Emilia will visit towns and local communities throughout the country rocked by murder and tragedies, from which the scars persist to this day. Through the testimony of investigating police officers, local journalists, friends and relatives, the series re-tells these shocking incidents and how the lives of those directly affected will never be the same again.
