These reactions to the Maddie McCann Netflix doc are so relatable it hurts
It was quite the rollercoaster ride
It's been a couple of weeks since Netflix released its latest true crime documentary, The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Since airing, the eight-episode series has received mixed reviews. Some are completely hooked on the true crime style portrayal of the case, whilst others say the doc presents no new information and is simply a retelling of what everyone already knew. If there's one thing all the Madeleine McCann documentary reactions agree on – it's that the whole thing was a rollercoaster.
From the beginning to the end your opinion changes so much, and your inner investigator goes from believing one theory to being set on another between each episode.
Here are the Madeleine McCann documentary reactions from start to finish, proving we all feel the same about the doc that has got everyone talking.
1. One episode in and it's full investigator mode

2. Literally everything about this doc is suspicious
Does anyone else find it wierd the mccans still look presentable 130 plus days after maddie went missing. If that were me and one of my kids went missing i would look a reyt mess, Bordering on homeless looking. Unshaven, sleep deprived, weight loss etc #MadeleineMccannNetflix

3. Side note, but this
Carried on watching that Madeleine McCann documentary last night and still I'm in absolute shock at how many pairs of three quarter lengths Gerry McCann actually owns.

4. I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHY THE DOOR WAS OPEN
watching this Madeleine McCann documentary & 1. Why did they leave the door open?? 2. Why didn’t their friend actually GO into the room to check on the children & 3. Why didn’t their other female friend report she seen a suspicious man carrying a child??? Hmmm…

5. This part actually blew my mind
— Amelia Dimoldenberg (@ameliadimz) March 17, 2019
Yes, they pinned an entire appeal on THIS PICTURE.
6. We trust dogs, and dogs only
7. By the middle, you can't help but question if you will actually make it to the end
Half way through the #MadeleineMccannNetflix & I don’t know what to think. What I do know is that they chose to leave their babies, in a foreign country, ALONE in that apartment. I could never do that. #heartbreaking

8. And just why was this guy given so much air time????
I don't know how anybody has watched this and formed any kind of opinion or thesis other than: this guy comes across so much worse than any of the suspects #MadeleineMccannNetflix pic.twitter.com/nRFVjrEqNn

9. Am I actually learning anything here?
5 and half hours into this Madeleine documentary and a man’s said “we can never question a dog – because they don’t speak our language” £7.99 for this thank you Netflix

10. Other than Portuguese, of course
This Madeleine McCann documentary is actually just so disappointing. Tell me all the theories about who took her. Stop speaking in Portuguese about the town.

That Madeleine McCann documentary is like bloody Duolingo I’m practically fluent in Portuguese after 3 episodes

11. LET'S TALK ABOUT HOW NONE OF US WILL EVER BE THE SAME AFTER EPISODE EIGHT
See in the Madeleine McCann documentary? In episode 8 when the peado comes in the window and lies in bed beside the wee girl?Is scary af

Spoiler alert: The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann. I need someone to DM me & tell me how episode 8 ends because I’ve stopped midway from being too creeped out after seeing the masked guy in the kids bed. Help.
— Your favourite brown girl (@kneelimb) March 17, 2019
Ok right though *spoiler alert* that scene in the last episode of the Madeleine McCann documentary with the man in the mask sneaking in those kids rooms freaked me the fuck out
— Sarah (@srhc24) March 17, 2019
How am I meant to sleep after watching the scene with the man in the surgical mask in the madeleine mccann documentary fam

12. By the end, your opinions have totally changed
I don’t fuckin think Kate and Gerry McCann did it anymore folks
— snow white (@dearbhlalol) March 19, 2019
Unpopular opinion: Kate and Gerry McCann did not kill or abduct their daughter
— soph 🌼 (@SophieCrowley) March 21, 2019
Feel sooo sorry for Kate and Gerry McCann, soo obvious they had nothing to do with it 😔
— Iona (@IonaMcEwan) March 28, 2019
I don't understand how people can still think Kate and Gerry Mccann have
anything to do with Madeleine's disappearance after watching the documentary. Also that main Portuguese investigator is a fucking cuuuuunt.
— swagdaddy (@Cazjcks) March 26, 2019
Madeleine McCann was 100% taken. The parents shouldnt have left the kids But I actually can’t believe how little Portuguese police did and how much it was twisted to make it look like the McCanns did it. Rather than trying to find her. #MadeleineMccannNetflix
— Sophie A (@ashtimartini) March 27, 2019
And to think we were all so sure as well.
13. I DON'T KNOW WHO TO BELIEVE ANYMORE
At this point I have no idea what to think of The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, like I'm on episode 7 and I had such solid opinions before watching this documentary. I'd never heard of the man with the big teeth and I'm just lost. pic.twitter.com/4vBZ6UDxb3
— AMELIA. (@davenwitz) March 20, 2019
Me after watching episode 6 of the Madeleine McCann documentary and completely changing my mind. SOZ that I never doubted you Kate and Gerry. Somebody best go find those ‘Orphanage money collectors’ so I can get to sleep tonight. IM SHOOK. pic.twitter.com/xXxMqCmCWX

15. I JUST WANT TO TALK OK
The Madeleine McCann documentary reactions prove one thing – the whole world felt the same watching it. You can't help but feel like an at home, sofa investigator and like your opinions on the case need to be shared with the whole world. But the Netflix documentary was a complete whirlwind and your opinions just kept changing and changing. Then by the end you are left with gaping hole in your brain like WHAT actually happened?? Will we ever know?? Wow, guess I'll never sleep again.
