Martin Clunes stars as John George Haigh, a successful engineer and socialite whose veneer of respectability masked homicidal impulses. Believing he had devised the perfect crime, Haigh embarked on a cold-blooded killing spree which was to earn him a place in the history books as `the Acid Bath Murderer'. Fact-based drama set in the 1940s, also starring Keeley Hawes and Celia Imrie.
