Brand new 10×60 series WRITTEN IN BLOOD brings fact and fiction together as bestselling thriller writer Simon Toyne meets fellow top crime authors to discuss how their works of fiction have been inspired by some of the UK’s darkest real life crimes.
Each episode delves into a different criminal case, employing reconstruction as well as interviews with the people closest to the crimes, from forensic experts to lead detectives.
As Toyne meets each author and learns how they adapted real-life events into best-selling books, we see how the horror of true crime can be far more violent and mysterious than fiction.
Leading Simon on his journey are some of the UK’s best loved crime novelists, including Mark Billingham, Peter James, and Alex Marwood.
