Our latest find on AcornTV is the show Manhunt. It features Martin Clunes from Doc Martin. Clunes plays DCI Colin Sutton, the lead detective on two cases investigated by the Met that captivated Britain.
The first series is based on an actual murder case investigated by the Met in 2004. The investigation into the death of French student Amélie Delagrange. The subsequent manhunt eventually led to the arrest of Levi Bellfield for Delagrange’s murder, and several other high profile, yet previously unsolved, cases.
The first series is three episodes. The series was first shown in the United Kingdom on 6 January 2019, airing on three consecutive nights. It had a big audience and received critical acclaim.
Teresa and I thought the first series was very well done. I think we sometimes forget what people are capable of. We also take for granted how hard investigating crimes really is. This show was a good reminder of how much we all owe to those who serve in law enforcement.
