Everyone’s been patiently waiting for today – 15th March – as Netflix’s controversial documentary called The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann has finally landed on the streaming service.

Yesterday, Netflix released their first trailer for the doc which you can watch below:

Soon after, more details emerged about the documentary, including the views of senior child protection officer Jim Camble who made the claim that he expects the case to be solved in his lifetime.

“There’s huge hope to be had with the advances in technology. Year on year DNA is getting better. Year on year other techniques, including facial recognition, are getting better.

And as we use that technology to revisit and review that which we captured in the past, there’s every likelihood that something we already know will slip into position.”

Now, though, people are starting to watch the documentary for themselves, and I have to say it’s a mixed bag.

Some people are captivated, believing more than ever they know what happened to her, while others have found it to be disappointing for revealing very little.

Oh and apparently there’s a bit about dogs that’s worthy of tweeting about. Check out what everyone’s saying:


Told you, it’s pretty divisive.

Nevertheless I’ve promised my SO that I’ll watch it with her this weekend and I’ve been told off in the past for going back on my word.

I’ll let you know my thoughts when I’ve got through it.
