You’ve heard the chilling tapes from Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy. Now, Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes dives into the case of one of America’s most notorious serial killers. Back for a third iteration, Conversations with a Killer uses never-before-heard audio interviews between Dahmer and his defence team to answer the big question: Why was Dahmer, who had been convicted of sexual assault of a minor in 1988, able to avoid suspicion and detection from police as he stalked Milwaukee’s gay scene for victims, many of whom were people of colour? The three-part docuseries not only delves into the killer’s warped psyche but also examines police accountability through a modern-day lens. Watch it on Netflix from October 7. 

In Rose West and Myra Hindley: Their Untold Story with Trevor McDonald, this true-crime documentary sheds light on the time spent behind bars by two of Britain’s most infamous female serial killers: Myra Hindley and Rose West. As told by respected journalist Sir Trevor McDonald, it sheds new light on what happened to them after they were locked up. In 1995, West was found guilty of murdering 10 young women – including her own daughter – with the assistance of her husband Fred West. Decades before, Moors murderer Hindley had been convicted of similar crimes, including the killing of five children in the 1960s. Both were incarcerated in the “Hell Wing” of HM Prison Durham alongside other dangerous female prisoners. After the pair initially bonded, the documentary delves into their increasingly competitive relationship as they battled for the title of “jail royalty”, while exploring the psychology behind their criminal behaviour. From October 6 on BritBox.
