The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann: TV at its most pathetic
Friday, 15 March 2019 Netflix’s Madeleine McCann documentary was full of shocks and theories from experts in ‘Our Maddie’ studies. So dire was the that the missing child’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, refused to take part. How can you fill an eight-part TV show if the people who knew the child best won’t say anything new? Will eight hours of grainy footage, newspaper cuttings and speculation be enough to keep subscribers tuned in to a show without end?
The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann went for timeline over insight. So we get Madeleine McCann off on her hols; Madeleine McCann on her hols; Madeleine McCann missing on her hols; and then lots of Our Maddie, how the child became public property and a docu-drama on pay-for-view telly.
The single thread story spun by a voracious media was all Netflix had and it wasn’t going to bother finding any more.
If you what happened, call the police. If you want to see a crime show, watch an Agatha Christie.
