Fans 'Aren't Sleeping' After Watching Manhunt: The Night Stalker

Fans 'Aren't Sleeping' After Watching Manhunt: The Night Stalker

The four-part series is seriously chilling.

If you’re looking for a pitch-black true crime drama to sink your teeth in to, look no further than ITV.

The channel has just dropped new four-part series Manhunt: The Night Stalker, a follow-up to their 2019 hit, Manhunt.

The latest series sees Martin Clunes, best known for his more comedic endeavours, reprise his role as real life detective Colin Sutton.

Watch the trailer below.

Having been widely praised for his efforts at capturing Levi Bellfield, Colin is now tasked to investigate a notorious serial rapist who terrorised south east London for over 17 years.

The rapist preys on the elderly and the vulnerable, leaving many people feel at risk in their own homes.

The story has been written by Ed Whitmore, who adapted the series from a number of Colin Sutton’s diaries.

And naturally, viewers have been left thoroughly freaked out by the bleak scenes on screen.

A second added: “This is gripping stuff,” before adding a gritted teeth emoji.

“What an absolutely horrendous man the perpetrator was,” a third added. “I feel so much for his victims, old and very vulnerable people.”

“I think I held my breath for tonight’s episode, it’s gripping,” said a fourth.

Despite its dark subject matter, people have been enthralled by the series, praising Martin Clunes for his more serious role.

“Brilliant casting, especially by Martin Clunes,” one person said, while another added: “Hopefully, following his role in Manhunt Martin Clunes will finally get an outstanding achievement award for being absolutely bloody amazing.”

A third agreed, saying: “I really like Martin Clunes in this role, he really is a very good actor.”

While a fourth chipped in: “Martin Clunes' understated performance of thorough, old school coppering has me hooked.”

The series continues every night at 9pm on ITV, and is available to catch up with on the ITV Hub.
