With a 40-year career in criminal behaviour and host of many television crime shows, including Channel 4’s In The Footsteps of Killers, David Wilson is no stranger to what motivates murderers and the triggers that can set them on a killing spree.

Together with Marcel Theroux – who most recently presented The Playboy Bunny Murder on ITV1 and has over 20 years’ experience in the literary field – they will delve into the realm of murder in fiction, characters, plots and locations that arouse lethal violence in the real world.

Announcing the tour, David Wilson said: “I am delighted to be touring again and am looking forward to once again engaging with the audiences, about true crime, violence and murder.

"And this time I will have a friend along for the ride, who will bring a whole new perspective on the topic.”

Marcel Theroux said: “This will be my first tour and I am so lucky to get to do it with an accomplice like David Wilson.

"I am truly thrilled to be a part of this – it’s such a fascinating topic – and to dive deep into the world of murder and fiction in front of a live audience every night will be a great experience and one I am greatly looking forward to.”
