The Trial of Dr Crippen – The Most Famous English Murderer
Mild-mannered Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen committed one of the most notorious English murders of the 20th Century.
In early 1910 he dismembered his wife's body and buried the remains in the coal cellar of the house they shared in Hilldrop Crescent, London. Arrested with his lover, Ethel Le Neve, who was disguised as his son, as they tried to escape to Canada aboard the SS Montrose.
His subsequent trial at the Old Bailey was expected to be a mere formality, but Dr Crippen pleaded 'Not Guilty!', and so begins this strangely moving tale of passion and despair.
A full-cast dramatization starring ANDREW SACHS as Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen, with Norman Bird, John Baddeley, Geoffrey Whitehead, Teresa Gallagher, Howard Ward, Robin Welch and Andrew Wincott.
