23 Free Serial Killer Documentaries
The UK List
This little lot should keep you busy for a weekend or two. Below I have compiled a list of 23 of the best UK serial killer documentaries that I can find. Updated Jan 2017.
Serial murderers, in this list, are defined as having been convicted of killing three of more people for self gratifying reasons.
All the obvious big names of Britain’s most famous serial killers are in the list like, Shipman, Nilsen, Sutcliffe etc. But there are also some names here that you may not have heard of.
Be warned, if you are not used to watching stuff like this, some of these doc’s can get pretty ugly. So, if you are under 18, move on, or get parental guidance please.
You can watch these documentaries online for free, just click the links below (they will open in a new tab or window).
