Another example of crime programmes’ attitude towards men’s deaths

I have just watched another episode of Murdertown. Surprise, surprise, nearly all of them have been about the deaths of women and girls.

In these circumstances, they devote the WHOLE programme to the investigation of the murder.

But when it came to the death of two rough sleepers, Tosh Richardson and Adam Vincent, they squeezed it all into one programme, paying little interest and little time to the death of one of them, Tosh Richardson.

Is it because they were both rough sleepers that they did that or was it because they were men?

And of course, the narrator or “starring role“, as they put it, was Katherine Kelly and the vast majority of her input was pure narration, no appearances. I think that says it all, don’t you?
