Join historian Robert Stephenson (aka Dr Death) as he re-evaluates five high-profile London murders, which set the nation talking and ended with the abrupt tightening of a noose of rope.
Hear the shocking stories of wife-dismemberer Dr Hawley Crippen, who became the first criminal to be apprehended via the then cutting-edge technology of the telegram, as he and his lover attempted to flee to Canada by ocean liner; paranoiac fraudster John Haigh who disposed of his six victims’ bodies in a bath of sulphuric acid; Timothy Evans, who was the hapless victim of a miscarriage of justice when he was wrongfully convicted of the murder of his wife; serial murderer and alleged necrophiliac John Christie, the real killer of Evans’s wife and at least seven others at his infamous 10 Rillington Place address; and gun-toting sex worker Ruth Ellis, who shot her lover outside a pub in Hampstead. The last four of these murderers met their end at the hands of Britain’s last hangman Albert Pierrepoint before the abolition of the death penalty in 1965.
