Shipman (2002)

Film details


Controversial docu-drama about the story of Dr Harold Shipman, the world's most prolific mass-murderer, who killed unknown numbers of patients over a period of 15 years. ITV screened the film just two years after Shipman's conviction. Relatives of the victims protested to the independent television commission because they are still waiting to hear the results of an inquiry, which could reveal that Shipman killed 450 more of his patients.
