During World War II, the German Luftwaffe began a massive bombing campaign over London and the surrounding British countryside known as The Blitz. By night, London began turning off all the lights in order to make it more difficult for German bombers to locate targets. But this also allowed a brutal serial killer to begin stalking London’s streets under cover of darkness.

    There is one small error in this episode. You describe released prisoners as “fighting for Queen and country.” That should be “King and country.”
    Elizabeth did not take the throne until after the war. Her father was King during the Blitz.
