The Detective Podcast

Hosted by investigative reporter and former police detective Mark Williams-Thomas, this podcast explores major crimes which are either unsolved murders, missing persons cases or possible miscarriages of justice. 

For each episode, you will be placed at the centre of these investigations where you, as the armchair detective, piece together the evidence and decide what has happened and in the miscarriage of justice cases is the conviction safe, or did our justice system get it wrong?
