Lady Killers: The Complete Series
This compelling anthology series recreates some of Britain's most notorious murder trials, in which both male and female defendants stood accused of the murder of women - if convicted, all faced the gallows. Introduced by Robert Morley, these dramas reconstruct fourteen sensational trials and feature powerful performances from an outstanding cast which includes Elaine Paige, Joan Sims, Rita Tushingham, George Baker, Peter Sallis, Michael Kitchen, Hannah Gordon, Christopher Cazenove, Ian Charleson, Michael Jayston, Kenneth Haigh, Gayle Hunnicutt and Phyllis Calvert.
Lady Killers looks at crimes which shocked and scandalised a nation: from the horrifying case of Victorian 'baby farmer' Amelia Dyer – suspected of strangling hundreds of infants in her care – and the trial and execution of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, to Neville Heath, the sex attacker whose savage crimes attracted international coverage.
