True Crime Series Investigates Murderous Doctors And Nurses

True Crime Series Investigates Murderous Doctors And Nurses

A new true crime set to investigate the murderous sprees of doctors and nurses is coming to Hayu - and it's probably not one for those who are already frightened of hospitals.

Season 2 of License to Kill - coming to the platform on 9th August - will tell the horrifying true stories of victims who were murdered at the hands of those who were meant to help them.

Hosted by Botched star Dr. Terry Dubrow, viewers will hear hilling testimonies from family members who witnessed their love ones become victims of foul play at the hands of killer medical professionals.

Described by Hayu as "mysterious and chilling true crime at its finest", the series follows season 1 which aired on the platform last year.

Dr. Dubrow says in a trailer: "Most medical professionals will go to any length to help their patients, but in some cases there are those with a deranged mind and a licence to kill."

CREEPY.

If License to Kill tantalises your tastebuds for true crimes based on murderous medical experts, then make sure you follow up with Shipman: 5 Mistakes That Caught a Killer.

The Channel 5 documentary, which is currently available to watch on My5, tells the story of Harold Shipman, the prolific GP serial killer who murdered hundreds of his patients over a two decade period.

In January 2000, Shipman was convicted of murdering 15 of his patients, though an inquiry launched after the trial concluded that Shipman had likely murdered 260 of his patients.

Shipman would administer diamorphine (or heroin), used for pain relief in cancer patients, to kill the swathes of patients, who were generally elderly single women, in the village of Pontefract, West Yorkshire.

The doctor would cover his tracks by falsifying records to make it seem as if his patients had a prior history of illness, and encouraging cremation, and discouraging relatives from requesting autopsies.

Shipman was eventually caught after the GP had killed Kathleen Grundy. He forged the elderly woman's will that left her entire estate of £386,000 to him.

Her daughter Angela Woodruff, a lawyer, reported it to the police and he was apprehended for fraud, at which time the depth of his killing spree unravelled.

Absolutely chilling.
