Don't Look Away

Brits have always been proud of their television shows. From crime to comedy, Britain punches well above its weight when it comes to producing great telly. With the announcement of series like Conversations With Friends, The Responder, and His Dark Materials all in production, the future looks especially bright on the BBC. As great as these programmes may turn out to be, we are really looking forward to another recently announced BBC production.

A True Story

Four Lives is a chilling new murder series coming to the BBC. From what we've learnt so far, it seems to be Britain's true-crime answer to Netflix's Mindhunter. Four Lives takes a look at the aftermath of four murders carried out by Stephen Port between 2014 and 2015. It is set to be a deeply unsettling story that manages to tackle serious issues regarding the case that shocked the nation.

From chronicling the serial killers infamous crimes, to the subsequent period of police detection work, the series will cover all the essential details regarding the crimes. The series is very much about the four young lives lost and how they could have been prevented. The three-part BBC drama will be told from the perspectives of the families of the victims. Stephen John Port is better known as 'The Grindr Killer' since he met his victims via dating apps.

A Change of

In an interesting casting move, Stephan Merchant plays the role of Stephen Port. Now you may recognise Stephan Merchant's name, but this would be from more comedic type of roles. The actor and comedian is best known as being the writing partner of Ricky Gervais for shows such as Extras, The Office (UK and US versions) and Life's too Short. In recent times, we have seen Merchant in front of the camera becoming a prominent actor. Although mainly seen in comedic roles, we are really interested to see him portray a serious role.  Much like how Steve Carell progressed from comedy to serious dramatic roles, Merchant looks to be doing the same career development through his upcoming role in Four Lives.
