Netflix fans have just days to watch ‘pure perfection’ BBC crime drama that left people begging for more

Netflix fans have just days to watch ‘pure perfection’ BBC crime drama that left people begging for more

You still have time to blitz through the incredible series before it gets the boot

You know those shows which have you screaming at the TV, flinging your popcorn in the air and perched on the edge of your seat?

Well, Netflix is having a clearout, and one of the show's which has been dubbed 'pure perfection' by viewers is on the chopping block and is getting the boot in just a few days.

So if there was ever a time to binge-watch your way through a Bank Holiday, this is it.

Along with a load of popular films, documentaries and series, The Missing will bid bon voyage to the streaming platform this month.

But don't worry, because you've still got time to cement yourself to the sofa and blitz through all the episodes before it gets evicted from Netflix.

Take a look at the trailer here:

The BBC drama, which first aired in 2014, is considered one of the best thrilling series which Netflix has to offer - and speaking from my own experience, I can concur.

It's also rated a lot higher on IMDb than anything in Harlan Coben's catalogue of crime shows, so if you've watched Fool Me Once, The Innocent or The Stranger, this is a must-watch.

If you somehow missed The Missing craze that swept the country ten years ago, you're in for a treat.

The series follows Tony Hughes (James Nesbitt), his wife Emily (Frances O'Connor) and their five-year-old son Oliver (Oliver Hunt) as they make their way from the UK to northern France.

The tense crime drama is being removed from Netflix.

The family are heading off on a holiday in the summer of 2006 during the World Cup, but shortly after arriving in the country, their car breaks down.

The brood are forced to spend the night in a small town and Tony takes his son to a busy outdoor bar to catch a glimpse of the quarter-finals match, only to suddenly lose sight of his son when punters burst into celebration.

As the title suggests, Oliver goes missing - leading his dad on a chaotic, crime-filled, and chilling journey to find him.

Even with the help of the extraordinary French detective Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo) - who later bagged spin-off series Baptiste following his incredible performance - the dad has a huge job on his hands.

The Missing first aired on the BBC ten years ago.

Fast forward eight years and Tony is divorced from Emily, but he still hasn't given up on the search for Oliver.

In the end, he persuades Baptiste to reopen the case of his missing son - and we'll leave that there, considering you're probably already rushing to find the remote to stick The Missing on.

And when your done with that, there's a second season to sink your teeth into.

See - it really was a smash hit. What on earth are Netflix thinking?

Although The Missing will say goodbye to the streaming platform on 9 April - which is just eight days away - the good news is that you will still be able to catch it on BBC iPlayer.
