Wondery’s true crime podcast Dr Death returns for fourth series

The critically acclaimed original true-crime series from Wondery, Dr. Death, will return in December for a new series.

It tells the story of a doctor who deceived both the medical establishment and the patients who put their lives in his hands.

Host Laura Beil returns for the fourth instalment, Dr. Death: Bad Magic, to tell the story of Serhat Gumrukcu, a charismatic medic who said he was on the brink of curing some of the world’s deadliest diseases—all while hiding secrets about his criminal past.

Serhat Gumrukcu was acclaimed as a genius after his research promised groundbreaking treatments for the terminally ill.

Excitement about the breakthrough made him rich—his biotech company reached a value of half a billion dollars.

Meanwhile, he led a charmed life in Los Angeles, posting photos of himself with celebrities in glamorous locations. But when a man from his past was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds, Gumrukcu’s secrets began to unravel. The investigation details a story of miraculous cures, spoon-bending magic, and murder.

Dr. Death: Bad Magic will be available on Wondery+ from 4 December, and on Amazon Music and all podcast providers starting 22 January.
