Very well done.

Very wekk done, Thorough and unbiased. It becane dragged out unnecessarily in the final episodes. Without those, it would nave been a full five stars, More, of the same- on another case -please

Not the best

I had some issues with this one. For example, why start the podcast by interviewing a writer who turns out to have little credibility. And there was a little bit too much bellyaching about the Staircase team. To their credit, however, they do cover the Owl Theory quite thoroughly.

Shockingly Biased

Given this is from the BBC, I expected a journalistic podcast. It’s nothing of the sort. They interviewed the main characters, but questioned nothing said by anyone other than MP, even ridiculous or untrue comments. I don’t necessarily think that MP is innocent, but this podcast is a great example of how people are assumed guilty. If offers nothing new relating to the case and gives no insight into the legal process.

So disappointed. Do better BBC.
