6 episodes

In this series we tell the shocking stories of women whose possible homicides go unrecognised, and uncounted, by police. In the UK, we’re told that two women a week are killed by a current or former partner – but these are just the killings we know about. The true toll could be much, much higher. In Hidden Homicides, investigative reporter Louise Tickle uncovers harrowing cases of killers missed, of grieving families ignored by police, of a body left to decay in a hospital morgue, and of systemic police failings. It is produced by Tortoise Studios. To learn more, go to tortoisemedia.com/hiddenhomicides.

Shocking exposé of police failing to investigate women’s murders

Really excellently put together series. This kind of in-depth research, exposing the limitations and/or negligence of governmental organisations that are meant to keep us safe, creates the body of evidence needed to shame the government into making necessary changes. I would have loved for this show to get a lot more attention than it did, but I am confident that once those changes do come around, it is shows like these that fuel that fire.

Thought provoking

As a journalist and also a victim of domestic violence myself, this series was fascinating and opens up further questions I would be interested in looking into.
Let’s hope this kind of journalism leads to real change. Amazing work.

yull love it ,

A must listen for everyone

In depth and beautifully put together. A must listen for everyone but especially women.
