Alastair Murden is an actor. Murden performs with Improv Shmimprov at the Maverick Theatre in Fullerton, California. He also hosts podcasts. Murden was raised in Essex, England. He received his BA in Performing Arts from the University of Winchester, and his MA in Acting and Musical Theatre from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
He used his medical knowledge to dispatch his victims quickly—and in some cases, to make their deaths look like accidents. But eventually the authorities caught on to Dr. Holmes, and a nationwide manhunt to stop one of history's most infamous killer doctors began. 
He’s often cited as America’s first serial killer. Nine of the murders committed by Dr. H.H. Holmes have been confirmed, though many suspect him of slaughtering dozens, if not hundreds, of victims between 1891 and 1894. From the beginning, he entered medicine in order to abuse the power and trust his patients placed in his hands.
After starting a private practice, Dr. Shipman escalated his crimes until a slip-up alerted authorities. The subsequent inquiry into “Dr. Death” forever changed the British medical field. Dr. David Kipper examines how Shipman used his medical training to get away with murder—and why it took almost thirty years to discover what actually happened to his "heart attack" victims.
Between 1974 and 1998, Dr. Shipman killed at least 218 people—more than any other serial killer in UK history. Addiction expert Dr. David Kipper sheds light on how Dr. Shipman's addiction spiraled from pethidine abuse to cold-blooded murder.
