Oscar winning Julian Fellowes examines the cases of real life unsolved murders from the 19th century in this fantastic new series.
Each story is told through lavish dramatic reconstruction and Fellowes investigates the cases against each of the suspects, presenting his own theory as to exactly what did happen.
The first episode delves into the death in April 1876 of Charles Bravo, a young barrister, who died a slow and agonising death after taking poison. Although there were many suspects no one was ever charged with murder. The inquest into his death was one of the most sensational legal dramas of the century, ensuring that the case made not just headlines but history. The case is a compelling story of love, adultery, greed, brutality and betrayal which fascinated and shocked Victorian society.
