Stephen Merchant (The Office, Extras) gives a chilling central performance in the true-crime drama The Barking Murders, based on the story of serial killer Stephen Port and the investigation that finally brought him to justice.
Retelling a heart-rendingly poignant case from the perspective of the victims’ families who fought for justice in the face of persistent police failings, this three-parter looks at the devastating impact Port’s crimes had on the families and friends of his four victims and on the wider gay community in London.
Going beneath the headlines to deliver a new perspective on the story, it reveals missed opportunities by the police to stop Port in the midst of his murderous spree. From the creative team behind Appropriate Adult, currently available on BritBox, The Barking Murders also stars Sheridan Smith (Cilla, Mrs Biggs, Gavin & Stacey), Jamie Winstone (Made In Dagenham, Tomb Raider, Kidulthood) and Rufus Jones (Stan & Ollie, W1A, Episodes).
“Quite simply as good as true-crime TV drama gets.” – The Telegraph
