Netflix Viewers Can't Get Enough Of BBC Crime Thriller That 'Feels Like A Movie'

One of BBC's epic Sunday night dramas has captivated Netflix viewers and shot into the streamer's most popular section after arriving earlier this month.


You Don't Know Me originally arrived on BBC One and iPlayer in December 2021; starring Samuel Adewunmi, the crime drama plays out over four intense episodes.

The series focuses on a protagonist named in the show as Hero, a car salesman who stands accused of murder.


Over the course of the episodes he reflects on the events surrounding the crime as part of his testimony in court, with his story captivating viewers and making it near impossible not to binge the series in one go.

A synopsis for the series explains: "The evidence against him is overwhelming, but rather than let one of the barristers decide what's in his best interest, he chooses to exercise his right to tell his own story, in his own words."

"His story is extraordinary, it's about the woman he loves, who got herself into dangerous trouble. It's about how he risked everything to save her. He swears he's innocent, but in the end, the only thing that matters, is if you believe his story or not," the synopsis continues.


The drama gained further attention following its arrival on Netflix and currently stands in third place in Netflix's UK Top 10 TV Shows, with many viewers taking to Twitter to share their love for the crime series.

"If you haven’t watched “You Don’t Know Me” on Netflix yet, you need to asap! It’s one of the best mini series I’ve watched this year. 4 part series, but feels like a MOVIE," one fan wrote, while another commented: "You Don’t Know Me on Netflix is incredible and I will not rest until the world knows this."

The show earned three 'fire' emojis from a third viewer, who added: "You Don’t Know Me show on Netflix is too good."


Each episode of You Don't Know Me lasts one hour, making the entire series the length of about two movies and certainly fitting for an epic bingeing session, but the way the series is brought to an end has left viewers begging for more.

Some have called on Netflix to offer 'answers' about the ending of the series, while others are demanding more people watch the series and offer their own thoughts on its conclusion.

If you're intrigued to find out what all the fuss is about, stream You Don't Know Me on Netflix now.
