Just brilliant. West Cork has the best sound design I’ve heard in any podcast. Wonderfully written and reported. So many podcasts in this genre feel exhibitionist, but Jennifer and Sam seem completely earnest in trying to understand what happened. They do a beautiful job of honoring Sophie’s...Read full review »

Please could we have another series of this superbly atmospheric podcast? It’s such a haunting story and it seems so much has happened since- I’d love to have an update.

I personally think he did and will probably find the time to tell him how I think

Captivating, well told murder mystery, but even more fascinating case study on sociopathy and domestic violence dynamics. If you work in mental health or the justice system, definitely worth a long, close listen.

Definitely a podcast I wish I could go back and listen to for the first time all over again! Love, love, love!

A woven tapestry of human behavior surrounding a most dreadful crime. Karmic ties run very deep here. Marvelous storytelling.#justice for Sophie

Brilliantly told story. Hosts are great working together. One of the best shows I’ve listened to. More please!

Way better than that Netflix crap.

This podcast feels like a labor of love for those involved in the writing, production, narration, music sound quality. Thank you! The very few critical reviews read biased, and simply off the mark.

Very well researched and put together. Engaging and interesting right to the end. Once you’ve listened to all of the episodes, go to Laura Richards’ Crime Analyst podcast for an in depth analysis of the crime, the victim and the suspects.

These journalists have done a wonderful job…well researched and produced and so thoughtful. I feel so badly for Sophie’s family, particularly her son and parents…a beautiful young woman who was taken in such a horrific and undeserving way. I also feel terribly for Ian Bailey, while I agree he is...Read full review »

If Ireland can not provide Justice for Sophie Toscan du Plantier, at minimum we should remember that SHE is the important part of this case. Really appreciated the community members who try to keep the victim in the foreground. Several deeply troubled personalities collided in wake of Sophie’s...Read full review »

What bad luck — if you were to be murdered, you could only hope you were not French, had vacationed in West Cork, be beaten to death and your case left in the hands of the Keystone-like cops in a small town in Ireland whose inhabitants read like an 18th century farce. But fate cannot be undone....Read full review »

Just brilliant.
Gekmeisje via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 09/22/21
The way the story is told has you changing your mind over his guilt on every episode,it just goes to show how easily persuaded we all are without even realising it.
steveb45 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/20/21
The sound design and the voices create such an interesting, peaceful and yet eerie atmosphere.
Rens 1984 via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 09/13/21
Addictive - narrative journalism at its best! Incredibly well made.
Catorm via Apple Podcasts · Israel · 09/12/21
Hard to write it in to a context of the podcast being a great series. But it is. Obviously, my heart goes out to Sophie and her family and I wish she and they didn’t experience this. It being what it is, the podcast did enlighten me to facts, suggestions that either, the Netflix or the Sky...Read full review »

I mean, a hands down 5 star podcast. Brilliant storytelling, narration, and beyond perfect sound design. An absolutely phenomenal example of what an investigative podcast should be.
Cheetah101 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/13/21
Absolutely fantastic, very detailed and thoughtful. Well done 👏
Monty ! via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/12/21
One of the best podcasts I’ve listened too. Really well produced and extensively researched. Top work.
jamiemctv via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/11/21
When talking about the alleged murder suspect, Ian Bailey, and his frequent calls to “backseat direct” their podcast. They state his calls could sometimes be annoying but sometimes easier to go with it. Easier to go with it?? Why are you appeasing someone directly linked to the story and who...Read full review »

Pour moi un des meilleurs podcasts jamais réalisés ! Un énorme travail journalistique, beaucoup de rigueur. Bravo et merci !
Pinkmartini's via Apple Podcasts · France · 08/01/21
After listening to the podcast, I had to go search for the series on Netflix just to rap my head around what had happened to the victim and her family 🙁 I must say, the Garda did a fantastic investigation and work with evidence. Amazing podcast 👍
MiMi BanDy via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 07/30/21
Superb, brilliantly reported, balanced, sensitive, humane, and both thought-provoking and quite touching.
This Is Mom or Laura via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/28/21
Ian Bailey, while a strange and unlikeable character, is innocent. The police suffered from biased tunnel vision and the true murderer is unknown. This podcast is much better than the rubbish Netflix docu-series.
Danielle.H via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/28/21
Watch the Netflix instead. See the people.
Ada Monroe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/27/21
In 1996, 20 women were brutally murdered in the Republic; three of these women were killed in December of 1996 — Sophie Buoniol, Geraldine Diver and Belinda Pereira. The murders of these women, and 2 others killed in 1996, remain unsolved. In the 25 years since Sophie, Geraldine and Belinda were...Read full review »

So much better than the recent Netflix documentary about the murder of Sophie du Plantier. Balanced, open-minded, thorough reporting which engages a number of perspectives and offers astute evaluations.
de Bhailis via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 07/18/21
A truly excellent piece of work, carefully researched, balanced , fair and a detailed account of this incredibly sad and haunting story.
caitburke via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 07/15/21
This was a wonderful documentary, so interesting and gripping. It is such a sad story and unbelievable that Sophie’s killer is still free. I truly hope some new evidence arises to convict her killer.
Mokomiss via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 07/13/21
This is a fabulous podcast! Had me from the beginning.. have no doubt of Ian Baileys guilt and his delusional partner, Jules needs to get some serious help. The Netflix doco is very good also.. this podcast had way more backbone. Well done!
lovespodcats via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/13/21
This has a lot of detail and interviews with folks involved, a well produced podcast! Thank you hoping this case will move forward
catti06783 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/12/21
This was a superb podcast. So well researched and presented. Well done to all involved on bringing this awful and horrific story to our attention and keeping it in the public eye.
Msbrigeen via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 07/09/21
I really enjoyed the style of this podcast and the story told, it really kept my attention. I binged this series.
rorykins88 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/08/21
Though, telling a judge that her explanation of Sophie’s brutal murder was ‘dramatic’…. It was a brutal murder after all??
HoneyChicken55555 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/07/21
This podcast is great though
Simon Cardiff via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/06/21
A well done podcast that I enjoyed - to a point. Despite being about the tragic murder of Sophie Toscan du Plantier, she almost immediately becomes a footnote in this story. Rarely discussed outside the context of the investigation, you could almost forget about the victim all together as the...Read full review »

One avenue of inquiry remains unexplored to this day.

Riveting! Well produced!
Daisy Joan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/02/21
Love this podcast. I can only assume the producers of this weren’t privy to all the info. After watching the Netflix series that has 2 witnesses that say Sophie knew Ian. Did I miss that in the podcast?
pickersplayspop via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/01/21
Very good crime podcast.

Would highly recommend to anyone interested in true crime.
Shanners886 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/29/21
This is in my top 5 true crime podcasts of all time, and I’ve listened to many. It was incredibly well structured, suspenseful, unexpected, and atmospheric.
Nicjj85 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/29/21
Couldn’t stop listening

Really well produced and delivered in a way that constantly keeps you hooked throughout. God bless Sophie that poor girl and her family. 🙏🌸
