That’s not worth taking. If you like 10 hours of red herrings and manufactured drama you’ll love it.

This very old true crime case podcast isa little rushed in places and disorganized in others but overall a very well researched and produced show. I hope for more updates as I’m on the very last episode now. It’s a good binge of international sea murder, great mix of Maritime adventure and...Read full review »

I’m currently in hotel quarantine and was looking for anything to rival West Cork podcast or Real Life Ghost Stories. I stumbled upon this - the story really does read as fiction but the reality of what happened to Chris and Peta is even more bizarre and terrifying. Told cleverly and sensitively...Read full review »

These people saying “victim blaming”... it’s absurd. No one is blaming anyone. Hard questions are asked, for sure. I think they were asking for human interest. To understand what they felt, and why they might have felt that way, and reacted the way they did. Not to blame them. Just to answer...Read full review »

This was such a thorough and detailed story with many twists and turns. A very talented team put this together. I enjoyed every minute of it.

I was kind of bored listening to your podcast during the beginning episodes but the ending episodes were really amazing especially when you guys pointed out the failures of law enforcement in general and how they impact many lives alive and dead all across the world.

Very good story and very well put together
Father_newman via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/27/21
As you would expect from the BBC. An amazing, and sad, story.
Brad Bronson via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/13/21
Wow! This podcast is absolutely extraordinary! In book terms it’s a real page turner. Without question one of the most gripping podcasts I’ve listened to for a good while. The hosts and family take you on an unforgettable but equally dark journey which is filled with twists and near breathtaking...Read full review »

This podcast is pretty dark but it is gripping. The journalists and family members take you through a range of emotions and evidence in this complex, frustrating and ultimately terribly tragic story.
Meeniemo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/01/21
Really enjoyed this series. Small parts were quite tedious and hard to follow but overall this podcast tells a disturbing and moving story, praising and challenging law enforcement when deserved. Would strongly recommend.
ALM1078 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/26/21
This is a really good podcast! I can recommend it to all true crime lovers. It is an perfect example of good investigative journalism and it really is one of the better true crime podcasts I’ve heard. Good job! Keep on producing stories like these for us please!
Emmalisse via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 04/17/21
1st episode was good. But gradually grew really really distasteful as Steve one of the producers questions the now grown son of the murderer with a tone implying as an 11 year old he could/should have acted differently. Steve pokes and prods this man with little sympathy let alone understanding...Read full review »

This podcast was so well done! I only wish that Duane lived long enough for the families to get justice for Chris and Peta.
beldo02 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/16/21
Incredibly well done. Binged over two days. Top notch investigative journalism.
Sarajane828 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/07/21
I listen to podcast 24/7 and this one stands out. The original format and crazy story make it binge worthy.
EricaH3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/05/21
The story of a murdered couple is expertly and respectfully told with lots of different content from the many people involved. This is a story which has taken over 40 years to t”be told and is a brilliant tribute to this remarkable couple.
Memmabunny via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/05/21
A tragic true story brilliantly told
Andydava via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/03/21
I’ve listened to may podcasts, and kind of a mystery junkie. This one is by far, the most addictive. I actually cried in episode 9! Well done!
Mauitwin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/26/21
Investigative journalism at its very best. Utterly compelling and brilliantly edited.
luccgil via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 02/21/21
Just found this in early 2021. What a well done investigation. I’m so sorry for all of those hurt by the Boston men.
JLK100 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/21
Thank you for sharing this story.
Magoo1974 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/13/21
Good production quality, enjoyable presenters. I’m sorry for the families involved and hope this sheds some light on a tragedy. However, the story is very linear. A tantalising link is given to another case in episode 3 or 4 but doesn’t really go anywhere. Lots of unfair criticism is given to the...Read full review »

Been obsessed with true crime since covid, especially long form. This is one of the craziest , beautiful, terrible stories I’ve ever heard. Dismiss the small number of ratings. Listen now!! On second thought, clear your schedule first...you won’t be able to stop listening.
Tiffany mc178 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/21
The story is told so well. Great voices and thorough investigation
Daisy1074 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/29/21
To much info in a short period. I’m 10min in episode one trying to remember Petas five brothers and sisters, why? Interesting story, but narration and audio could be better. Would like to hear an improved season 2 though.
abcd.dcba via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/20/21
This is a masterpiece of BBC journalism and cold case investigations. I was lucky to find this thrilling story through the website for award winning podcasts I check occasionally. I wouldn’t ask for more on this subject, it’s perfect from my perspective. All I can ask you is to teach younger...Read full review »

Great podcast!!

Love every bit of it
amqc123 via Apple Podcasts · United Arab Emirates · 01/09/21
Wonderfully researched and written. Uncovering the truth and injustices is hard work and the host obviously cares very deeply for the victim’s family. Vince, i hope you are okay. Keep on reporting. Lana.
Lana Hiott via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/21
Fantastic- from incredible research to production values and compelling storytelling. I hope you do some follow up episodes. 🤞
M.C.me via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/31/20
Unusually well researched podcast, and a tragedy told with humor and meticulously researched. Highly recommend.
DesertbieneMaja via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/28/20
Up until victim blaming a man for a traumatic situation he was in when he was a CHILD. I urge you to do your research on what happens to someone during a trauma especially to this degree because his response was more than normal and just because his response doesn’t fit your expectations of how a...Read full review »

Best podcast of 2020! Quite underrated too.

Just found this podcast. Very well done.
Betty A C via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/20/20
Episode 3.... not happy... will change rating if it gets better. Victim blaming does not = investigation....
fixthedamnthing! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/14/20
Overall a very enjoyable listen. One concern- this is coming very late, but I am troubled by the pieces where the boys’ accounts of their reaction to witnessing the murders are then used as evidence that their story is false or made up. They each describe freezing and becoming speechless or...Read full review »

Absolutely phenomenal. Thank you for such a touching podcast.
ElSiv10 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/20/20
I’m late to listen, I normally avoid anything attached to the BBC due to its anti white rhetoric(so much so I never watch tv anymore and podcasts are my new thing instead) I wasn’t invested and ready to sigh and switch off but was more than pleasantly surprised. This is exactly how podcasts and...Read full review »

A tragic story. Unbelievably sad & such cruelty is beyond imagination. The depth that this podcast goes into makes it hugely engaging and interesting.......utterly recommend anyone to listen to this.
David Rhys via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/05/20
Thank you for sharing such an important story and giving the families closure. Powerful!
CL dorset via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/18/20
Well done to all involved, gritty determined investigative journalism at its best. The BBC funded by the British public, it makes our licence fee worth it listening to productions like this - thank you. And also to the family members of all concerned for sharing deeply personal tragic events.
NatsPoddie via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/16/20
Stephen’s interviewing style of traumatised people - adults whose parents were murdered when they were children - is at best uncomfortable and at worst upsetting. To analyse, pull part and challenge the credibility of what a 13 year old child witnessed is appalling. Interesting story but I can’t...Read full review »

Wasn’t sure at first, not really my thing, but well investigated, reported and produced. Hope there are follow ups with more info and maybe another story by the same team. Have to acknowledge that this was a tragic true story and this was sensitively handled and contributions from family...Read full review »
