Coastline crimes are coming in new Murder by the Sea season six
True crime aficionados are in for a treat tonight, as CBS Reality’s Murder by the Sea returns for a sixth season.
There’s something strange about the British seaside… it seems to be the setting of an awful lot of murders. This is the premise of documentary series Murder by the Sea, which explores murders committed amidst the sun, sand and candy floss. Presented by crime historian and author Dr Nell Darby, this true crime series exlores the shocking stories that might make British holidaymakers think twice.
The sixth series sees Dr Nell re-visiting high-profile murder investigations such as the murder of Margaret Whitcombe by her jealous ex-husband Philip Manning, which sparked a national manhunt in 1994.
She’ll also examine the 1995 murder of Margaret Wilson, which took over three years to solve after the well-liked 66-year-old was targeted in a seemingly random attack.
Television dramas have long used the concept of a murder taking place alongside the crashing waves upon the shore of the British coastline. Murder by the Sea reveals the horrible truth – that such murders are common on the British shoreline – and asks the question of why that may be. Complete with reconstructions, witness reports and expert analysis, Murder by the Sea is unique take on the true crime genre.
