How to Catch a Serial Killer

Directed by John Holdsworth

Spanning more than a decade, multiple murders, two much-publicised trials and one irreparably damaged career, it is a story of the dogged pursuit of a serial-killer by a police officer determined to get justice for the families of his victims. From the moment the case of a missing 21-year-old girl named Sian O'Callaghan landed on the desk of DCI Fulcher, the hunt was on. What unfolded over the following five days was a game of cat-and-mouse of the utmost stakes, characterised by the painstaking and relentless pursuit of a killer by a seasoned detective with decades on the force.

Great thought provoking documentary. Puts under a spotlight the daily battle between rights and law enforcement . Though in this case it’s hard to imagine Steve Foulcher doing anything but finding Sain , we need to remember that authority is often abused . If we allow the less educated to be manipulated by authority we can wind up with innocent people in jail more importantly guilty people amongst us . I stand strong against tyranny and abuse of power but didn’t feel like this met either of those levels . The culprit as well as the families victims ultimately benefitted from this investigation .

Very good crime documentary! It's disappointing that the detective was so heavily punished for what he did but I guess this is the way they do things in England

Short but absolutely to the point. It seems to me a very UK/European behavior where we have a lot of laws to prevent police officers to cross the line, even though those limits can be quite questionable. Curious about how would this be received in the US.
