Ep2 Tuesday 14th November 2023 
on ITV1 and ITVX

Pictured: Playboy Bunny Eve Stratford who was murdered at her home in Leyton, East London, on 18th March 1975.

A brand new true crime series will see Marcel Theroux investigate a set of disturbing murders of young women that have remained unsolved since the 1970s and reveal a dark and violent side hidden beneath the wealth and glamour of exclusive corners of London’s nightlife at that time.

The journalist and filmmaker’s long-standing interest in the brutal murders, which shocked the London he grew up in, led him to return to the killings of Eve Stratford, a Playboy Bunny who aspired to be a famous model, Lynda Farrow, a croupier with years of experience working in nighttime London, and Lynne Weedon, a schoolgirl whose whole life lay ahead of her.           

This 2x60 series aims to unravel the mystery of the victims’ deaths, through unrivalled and exclusive access to friends, colleagues and relatives of the victims who provide an intimate insight into their lives and personalities as well as archive material from the time that will bring 1970s Mayfair to life.

Marcel’s hunt to shed light on who was responsible takes him back to that time, sees him try to track down police files, examine new breakthroughs and travel across the world in search of key figures who have been linked to the case as he pursues the truth that has remained hidden for decades.
