DVD & Blu-ray » Series » Robbie Coltrane's Critical Evidence
When there's a murder with no suspect, no leads and perhaps not even a body, that's when investigators face their toughest test. Evidence must be gathered. Evidence must be analysed. But evidence is worthless if it cant be pinned to a suspect... Most murder victims knew the perso...n that killed them. That's why homicide, in many cases, is a straightforward crime to solve. Yet 20% of UK homicides are classified as circumstances unknown. In this series, Robbie Coltrane reveals eight of the hardest, most complex and baffling murder cases ever to be investigated by British police. The focus of each programme is the trail of evidence: how it was discovered, what it meant and how it became critical to crack the case. With interviews from the lead investigators and forensic specialists, many speaking for the first time, Robbie reveals the astonishing twists and turns of often stranger-than-fiction cases. It is a record of the detectives art: using skill and determination to solve seemingly unsolvable cases because the only difference between success and failure is critical evidence.Read more

In this captivating new series, Robbie Coltrane - son of a Police Surgeon and legendary star of Cracker - presents a collection of extraordinary criminal cases that were so meticulously planned and executed that the perps would have got away with them if it hadn't been for one sc...rap of critical evidence. In each episode, Robbie narrates the story of a single dark, notorious crime that was initially unsolvable. These highly complex cases were littered with false leads, contaminated evidence, and unreliable testimony - where nothing could be firmly pinned on a suspect... BUT, as Robbie reveals by taking us through the intricate process of each investigation, a single example of genius detection eventually led to one piece of evidence that linked everything together and finally put guilt beyond reasonable doubt.Read more
