Ep 45: In the winter of 1991, tragedy hit the local hospital in Lincolnshire, England when many children were suddenly stricken by a mysterious & deadly illness. 
Doctors were baffled as these children were admitted to the hospital separately and for relatively minor conditions. However, the children did all have ONE thing in common, they were all left in the care of the same nurse… 
Could it be that a person trusted to guard the welfare of these patients was actually the one putting them in peril? What possibly could turn a nurse to murder?
