    Product Details

    This disturbing and compelling anthology series, further 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, every woman 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, the hour-long dramas feature powerful performances from outstanding casts, including Joan Sims, Rita Tushingham, Joanna David, Elaine Paige, Michael Kitchen and Peter Sallis, among many others.
