The best Netflix crime documentaries to watch after 'Making a Murderer'

We get it, you've just spent three days watching Netflix’s 10 part docu-series Making a Murderer and want to tell everybody what you think. Join the club.

Barely a fortnight has passed since the documentary series hit the streaming site and already over 170,000 people have signed petitions calling for the release of Steven Avery, the US man imprisoned for 18 years for a crime he didn’t commit, eventually freed on DNA evidence and soon arrested again for another murder. 

Misunderstood families, dubious evidence, conspiracy - it had it all. But while the jury may still be out on Avery’s case – at least on social media anyway – you don’t need to do much second guessing over what to watch next on Netflix. More crime documentaries obviously.

Prepare yourself for another binge.
