The Widower

Malcolm Webster (Reece Shearsmith) is, on the surface, a perfect British gentleman. Well-spoken, personable, and oozing with charm, he marries his first wife, Claire Morris (Sheridan Smith), in 1993. However, a year after her dream wedding, Claire is dead - the apparent victim of a tragic road accident.

Four years later, a broke Webster starts anew in New Zealand with his second wife, Felicity, who helps him to find love again. But on their wedding night she feels groggy, and for the next year suffers from unexplained blackouts.

This chilling true story tells how Felicity pieces small clues together before finally realizing that the death of Webster's first wife might not have been an accident. After Malcolm disappears and resurfaces in Scotland, Felicity begins a desperate race against time to try and convince a Scottish detective (John Hannah) her husband is in fact a cold-blooded killer already lining up wife number three.

A well acted true story set in the UK and New Zealand,following the exploits of a dangerous psychopath who preys on tender- hearted unsuspecting women. Fascinating to see how he is finally trapped by his tissue of lies.

Review by Tawanda647 on 02/22/21 review stating The Widower
When I began watching this, I hadnt read it was a true incident. Mr.Shearsmith is so good as the Widower that it was very easy to really despise him. He was superbly evil in all that he did and was so believable. My spouse refused to continue watching this with me because it was so disturbing to him!!
