This disturbing and compelling anthology series helps lay to rest the long-cherished idea that women are the gentler sex. Lady Killers presents dramatic reconstructions of seven infamous murder trials where in each case the defendant was female; if convicted, all faced the gallows.

From the horrifying case of Victorian ‘baby farmer’ Amelia Dyer – suspected of strangling hundreds of infants in her care – to the trial and execution of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, Lady Killers looks at crimes which shocked and scandalised a nation, examining the individual’s motives and often brutal methods in depth. Introduced by Robert Morley, these dramas feature powerful performances from an outstanding cast which includes Elaine Paige, Joan Sims, Rita Tushingham, George Baker, Peter Sallis and Michael Kitchen, among others.
