James Marriot • The Times UK Aug 31, 2023

"...you’re struck — and impressed — by what a huge cast of professionals have dedicated themselves to interpreting Letby’s evil and wheedling out the truth about her crimes...You are struck by the intellectual courage it took for the hospital’s consultants to begin to think the unthinkable. "

Anna Leszkiewicz • New Statesman Aug 30, 2023

"This series, hosted by the journalists Liz Hull and Caroline Cheetham, positions itself as a contemporary form of court reporting, but is also in the business of turning a live story into what we might queasily call “true crime entertainment”. This register – pious concern masking voyeuristic excitement... will be familiar to anyone who has encountered a true crime series in the past. The series’s attempts to present itself as a public service dealing strictly in facts...are undermined by this hand-rubbing tone. The dangling of each piece of evidence as it is presented in court encourages the listener to position themselves as detective. It’s a deeply uncomfortable listen – in every sense."

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Aug 26, 2023

"The show’s promotion borders on the offensive....but the podcast itself is interesting and well done, if you wonder how such complicated crimes are investigated and tried. The show isn’t for me – the tone veers too often into lip-smacking – but, as criminal psychologist Dr David Holmes says in episode 52, this is a modern reinvention of traditional court reporting."
