ComingSoon.net is debuting the exclusive trailer for In the Footsteps of Killers, BritBox’s upcoming docuseries that features an interesting new take on the true-crime format. Debuting all episodes on July 6, the series pairs Emilia Fox, an actress known for playing an investigator on the long-running Silent Witness, with Dr. David Wilson, a renowned criminologist who specializes in serial killers — specifically their psychology and motives.
Investigated like a documentary but filmed as a drama, the series sees the pair investigating three cold cases using new leads and new technology including a cutting-edge anatomy table, which digitally recreates cadavers. In the Footsteps of Killers follows the duo as they reinvestigate the evidence and revisit the crime scenes to walk in the footsteps of the killer, attempting to see the scene from the perspective of the perpetrator and the victim.
Check out the exclusive trailer below:
Through Fox’s extensive research for her role in the hit BBC Series, she has become engrained in the world of unsolved cases. Combining her talent with Professor Wilson’s professional background in studying serial killers, the unlikely pair base themselves in the vicinity of the crime and reexamine the evidence for themselves. By meeting with police, witnesses, journalists, experts, and beyond, the two will walk the murder scene in the footsteps of the killer to crack the unsolved cases.
The cases being investigated include:
- The Disappearance of the Milk Carton Kids
- The Disappearance of Suzy Lamplugh
- The Murder Of Rita Ellis
