Arlington, Va. – September 17, 2015 – PBS Distribution announced today it is releasing “THE WIDOWER” on DVD and Blu-ray October 20, 2015.  The chilling true story of Malcolm Webster (Reece Shearsmith) a perfect British gentleman – well-spoken, personable, and oozing with charm, or so it appears.

In 1993, Malcolm and his first wife Claire (Sheridan Smith) have their dream wedding, only a year later she’s dead, a victim of a tragic car accident.  Four years later, completely broke, Malcolm starts anew in New Zealand with his second wife Felicity (Kate Fleetwood).

 

However, on their wedding night, Felicity feels unusually groggy and for the next year suffers from unexplained blackouts.  Soon, she pieces together small clues and realizes the death of Malcolm’s first wife may not have been an accident after all. 

 

When Malcolm disappears and resurfaces in Scotland, Felicity begins a desperate race against time to convince a Scottish detective (John Hannah) that her husband is in fact a cold-blooded killer – lining up wife number three.
