Shocking series that peers behind the lace curtains of suburban Britain to expose its dark, sinful and murderous underbelly.
This series of contemporary detective stories reveal that criminality is not only confined to the cities – in fact some of the most gruesome and unexpected crimes in recent history have taken place amongst the most unsuspecting and apparently innocent of communities.
Nightmare in Suburbia tells the stories of some of Britain’s hardest to solve murders by combining interviews with the investigating officers, friends and family together with actual police footage, CCTV, home video and stills. Episodes include the case of a wife lacing her husband’s favourite meal of curry with anti-freeze; the story of a respectable suburban wife turned internet dominatrix and ultimately murderer; and a woman who decided that the best way to solve her financial difficulties was to convince her nephew to carry out a gruesome crime.
