Lon­don is a city with a grue­some his­tory and mur­der is cen­tral to many of the cap­i­tal’s most mem­o­rable sto­ries. This four-part se­ries, pre­sented by Ni­cholas Day, ex­plores a quar­tet of griz­zly tales, be­gin­ning with the ‘Ber­mond­sey Hor­ror’. This was a case in 1849 that saw Marie Man­ning and her hus­band Fred­er­ick, con­victed of killing Marie’s lover, Pa­trick O’Con­nor.

Charles Dick­ens was fas­ci­nated by the case. The nov­el­ist at­tended the dou­ble hang­ing of Marie and Fred­er­ick, and based Made­moi­selle Hortense, Lady Ded­lock’s maid in Bleak House, on Man­ning’s life.
