Who Killed My Son? is a modern-day Miss Marple mystery, set in the contrasting worlds of grimy, crack-stained East London and Guildford’s middle-class stockbroker belt.

The Channel 4 documentary explores the unexplained death of Mark Blanco in 2006. Mark died in suspicious circumstances after attending a party with the controversial rock star Pete Doherty. After a failed police investigation, his death still remains a mystery to this day, but could modern new forensic evidence finally help his family understand what really happened on that fateful night? This is the story of his grieving mother, Sheila Blanco’s, relentless pursuit of justice.

The debut film by director Ben Cheetham is a brutally compelling forensic examination of the full story behind Mark’s death.
