Shoe info and concept

The Investigator: A British Crime Story is a gripping four-part true-crime series that premiered on July 14, 2016 on ITV. It is produced by Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment and is hosted by ex-police detective and journalist Mark Williams-Thomas.

The docuseries probes into the 1985 mysterious disappearance of Carole Packman from the family home she shared with her husband Russell Causley and their teenage daughter Samantha. Despite the fact that Carole’s body was never found, Russell was found guilty of her murder, and he has consistently denied being involved in her death until confessing to his fellow inmates. The multi-layered image of their family and the questionable circumstances that were present around the time of Carole’s disappearance both create ambiguity and make definite answers impossible, while more and more questions regarding the case arise. At some point William-Thomas sets off to Canada to search for Carole who might have begun her life anew.

Viewership and chances of renewal

The nature of the discoveries made by William-Thomas is riveting, yet still inconclusive, and it seems that thus it may remain forever, although Samantha, now a 47-year old woman, is not ready to give up on her search for answers. The Investigator: A British Crime Story premiered to an audience of 2.89 million viewers, remaining just as strong throughout its run. The social media response has also been very impressive. It does not seem likely that the investigation of same case will warrant a renewal, but perhaps another one will be undertaken, making the series an anthology docuseries (if it is renewed at all). Stay tuned, and we will keep you informed about the show’s fate.
