One of the most remarkable things about Something Undone is that it has taken this long to give the world of the true crime podcast the psychological thriller box set treatment. Happily however, this Canadian series starring and written by Madison Walsh and Michael Musi as Jo and Farid proves that the wait was worth it.
Below you’ll find all the details you need to watch Something Undone from anywhere with a VPN, and potentially for FREE.
The couple are the content creators on their own true crime podcast - Jo (a foley artist) supplies the sounds that bring life to her partner’s words - and a trip to Briddus in Newfoundland to look at a harrowing case from 1980s which saw five members of the Chaffey family murdered feels like an opportunity not to be missed.
Once a tourist destination, Briddus never really recovered from the Chaffey cases and the satanic claims associated with the murders and the locals (including bent cops) are determined that the whole business remains buried. The closer Farid gets to the truth, the more danger he is in.
Jo is staying at the home of her recently deceased mother - a schizophrenic who took her own life - and, whilst existing in her own world of sound-recording, begins to hear things that take her down a path to a dark family secret.
Months later, having seemed to have left the project behind and now trying to save their strained relationship, both Jo and Farid realise that the events of many decades before have bled into their lives and may not be finished with them yet.

How to watch Something Undone with a VPN
A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the country you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, even when you're traveling or don't live in the service's "home" country to begin with.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance, if you're in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you'd select U.K. from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to ITVX or another service and tune in.

Who is in the main cast of Something Undone?
Michael Musi as Farid – a podcaster determined to solve a cold-case murder.
Madison Walsh as Jo – a foley artist who struggles with her mental health.
Billy Campbell as Pastor Cape – an enigmatic man of the cloth.

Later, as they escape to an isolated island in an attempt to recover, they ultimately move closer to the trauma they so desperately tried to escape.
