Macabre London also examines a song that accounts say is sad enough to have led to several deaths. Written in Hungary in 1933, "Gloomy Day" has earned the moniker "the suicide song."
True crime cases on the show range from 1700s scams to modern-day murders. Nikki has even examined Henry VIII's string of killings. At the end of each year, Macabre London covers the year's highlights in a series of mini episodes. The "Weird News" episodes are a lighthearted departure from the more grim topics.
