The Murder Next Door

From the makers of the hugely successful ratings smash hit The Nightmare Neighbour Next Door, comes a new three-part primetime factual series for Channel 5. This series presents an entirely unique portrait of the killers and the community they lived in.

Imagine saying a friendly good morning to a neighbor on your way to work, only to return home to find the street cordoned off with police tape and a scene of crime officers photographing your surroundings for evidence – or checking your news feed and realising people you know are involved in the most unthinkable crime – Murder.

Across a series of three single narrative films, the show tells three separate compelling stories that explore the shockwaves within a community when someone that lived amongst them commits murder or is murdered.

Each programme examines different motives from revenge, to love gone wrong and greed.  With unique access to investigating police forces and experts from the field of criminal psychology, no stone is left unturned as the crimes are investigated.  Those involved tell their own stories, in their own words so the viewers at home can piece together the clues that led to the crimes and ultimately the convictions.

An Avalon Factual production for Channel 5
