Table of contents

The author says: I believe euthanasia or assisted suicide is practiced by many GPs. I have no idea about how many, but I agree that doctors will do this regularly, it will be a tacit thing done when the person is in their last few days probably. But Shipman was not doing this. The great majority of his victims were old but reasonably healthy. They had years left in them. These were murders of a completely different type than your usual sexually-related Bundy stuff. In all cases Shipman was sending these old people peacefully — indeed, blissfully — into the great beyond.

There was not the tiniest hint of violence or aggression in his conduct. Once he was caught Shipman never admitted any guilt and never gave any explanations. After a couple of years in jail he hanged himself.

Having personal experience of the psychotic persona, I found the psychologist's detailed explanations of the killer's modus operandi quite interesting:-'Psychopathy is the psychological term used to describe someone who has no capacity for guilt, for conscience or for empathy.

He kept his own records; he was in a solo practice. Yet people died like crazy--old, middle-aged, mostly women--and no one did a thing until they finally inspected the number of deaths on his watch. The credibility that was accorded him was similar to that accorded to Roman Catholic pedophile priests. The best parts of the book are the analyses from various scientists.

The worst parts are that the author insisted on writing down several paragraphs about each single death. That became repetitive and tiresome fairly quickly. This book is a riveting read, even though you 'know what happens'. I read it in a couple of days while on holiday.

It's jaw-dropping, when you consider the extent of Harold Shipman's murders. The fact that he murdered so many people over a couple of decades, and no one noticed.

Well, some people did, but they either didn't have the courage to accuse the doctor understandable or they weren't taken seriously. However, the title is a little misleading because the question of 'why' he killed is ne This book is a riveting read, even though you 'know what happens'. However, the title is a little misleading because the question of 'why' he killed is never answered.

It can't be, because Shipman never admitted to his crimes and committed suicide so we'll never know. It's all just guess work, no matter how much they talk about his childhood.

There was a police inquiry, but there wasn't enough evidence to charge him. Over the course of 23 years, it's believed Shipman - dubbed "Doctor Death" - killed up to people. He was caught when he forged the will of Kathleen Grundy, leaving her inheritance to himself. The police then found he had been administering lethal doses of diamorphine, signing patients' death certificates, and then falsifying medical records to indicate that they had been in poor health.

An inquiry launched after the trial concluded that Shipman had in all probability murdered almost of his patients, with crimes stretching back two decades. Given our ageing population and the fact that many of us may later rely on medical professionals and care givers, Wilson will seek to understand what can be learned from the case of Shipman, so that nothing like this could ever happen again.

The film will set out to explore how he got away with his crimes for so long, murdering so many people in plain sight for more than twenty years.
