Trivia

Kate and Gerry McCann, Madeleine's parents, have repeatedly refused to take part in this Netflix documentary. They have also urged everybody around them not to give interviews to the producers. Kate and Gerry said "they didn't ask for it and don't see how it will help the search for Maddie on a practical level", so they chose not to engage. See more »

More voyeuristic than informative
18 March 2019 | by marcmillar23See all my reviews

I watched all 8 episodes. If you have a strong interest in the case, then you are more than likely going to watch it regardless. Typical Netflix documentary. Slick titles, quite nicely shot, albeit a lot of repetitive scenes and drone footage of the beach and town.

However, I'm afraid to say that you are not going to learn a lot from it, if you have already followed the story from the outset.

A fairly good watch though, if it's a week before payday and you're skint and you have absolutely nothing else to do.
