Synopsis

Britain’s number one crime author Martina Cole investigates the life and times of the most notorious female serial killers in a series of six drama documentaries that ask why do women kill and why are we surprised when they do?

The series spans the centuries from the Hungarian countesses through Victorian villanesses to modern day killers including Rosemary West, Beverly Allit and the series opener Myra Hindley. Each programme examines the life and criminal careers of an individual killer using expert analysis and dramatic reconstruction.
