What is Marcel Theroux’s new show The Playboy Bunny Murder about?
This ITV true crime series sees Marcel Theroux investigate a set of disturbing murders of young women that have remained unsolved since the 1970s, revealing a dark and violent side hidden beneath the wealth and glamour of London’s nightlife.
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 two-part series aims to unravel the mystery 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.
Marcel’s four-year 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 in search of key figures who have been linked to the case as he pursues the truth that has remained hidden for decades.
