MURDER: THE BIG BANG

DRAMA. 60 MINUTES (2016)

The Bafta award-winning drama Murder is set to return to BBC Two with three new films. Co-created by Robert Jones and Kath Mattock, and written by Robert Jones, the 3×60 series has been made by Touchpaper TV for BBC Two.

Episode 3 – Murder: The Big Bang – is directed by Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard.

Continuing with the same innovative and unique format, with three new standalone films, Murder uses personal confessions to revisit the missing moments leading up to a death, in search of the truth. Intercut with CCTV footage, live action and forensic evidence, the protagonists speak direct to camera giving their version of events. But where does the truth lie when the different versions don’t add up?

Murder is produced by Kath Mattock and executive produced by Rob Pursey and Kath Mattock for Touchpaper, Matthew Read for the BBC and Robert Jones.
