Talking about the case, Jim Gamble: Senior child protective officer, stated,

"Madeleine could still be alive and found with the help of improved technology."

“There’s huge hope to be had with the advances in technology. Year on year DNA is getting better. Year on year other techniques, including facial recognition, are getting better,” he says in the series. “And as we use that technology to revisit and review that which we captured in the past, there’s every likelihood that something we already know will slip into position.”

The documentary gathered lots of issues during its release as Kate and Gerry refused to involve. They stated that the documentary can lead to obstacles in the ongoing investigation.  

Madeleine parents share about the interview saying:

“We are aware that Netflix is planning to screen a documentary in 2019 about Madeleine’s disappearance"

"But we did not see – and still do not see – how this programme will help the search for Madeleine and, particularly given there is an active police investigation, it could potentially hinder it.”

“Consequently, our views and preferences are not reflected in the programme. We will not be making any further statements or giving interviews regarding this programme.”

The documentary was initially planned to release in 2018 but due to rejection by key figures the documentary finally was delayed till 2019.
