The Trial of Dr Crippen: A Mr Punch True Crime Drama.

"...the chilling sentence of Dr Crippen will raise the hairs on the back of your neck"

"Mr Punch is going from strength to strength, continuing their good run of classy audio" Talking Business

Step back in time to Edwardian London and take a seat in the infamous Courtroom No.1 at the Old Bailey and meet Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen, the mild-mannered physician accused of committing one of the most infamous murders in English history, that he had murdered his wife and gruesomely dismembered her body and buried her remains in the cellar of their home in Hilldrop Crescent, London.

But that's just the beginning of this astounding story! 

Drawing exclusively from the original trial transcripts, eyewitness accounts and contemporary reports, we join the jury, as they delve into the twisted love affair between Crippen and his lover, Ethel Le Neve, who together attempted a daring escape to Canada, with Ethel disguised as Crippen's own son. And prepare for the dramatic courtroom showdown, where Dr Crippen's unexpected plea of 'Not Guilty!' turns a seemingly straightforward case into a tale of passion and despair, where murder, disguise, and his desperate escape blur the lines between reality and fiction.

Starring ANDREW SACHS as Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen with Norman Bird, John Baddeley, Robin Welch, Geoffrey Whitehead, Teresa Gallagher, Howard Ward, Robin Welch, Andrew Wincott and full supporting cast.

Also available as part of the Great British Trials Box Set, a fascinating eight-hour collection of true crime dramas, featuring the trials of Ruth Ellis, Dr Crippen, Timothy Evans & John Reginald Halliday Christie.
