This review is from: Ladykillers - The Complete Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I used to watch this back when I was a kid, and it scared the life out me! This is a must for any 40 something who wants to relive Friday night TV from the early 80s. The performances are first class, and each story is well put together.
I can't wait for series two, which expands the genre from "women who kill" to "men who kill women"
Can't recommend this highly enough!!

Edwardian Lady says:
I also watched this when I was still at school, and it was seriously scary at the time, especially the intro! But it gave me a lifelong interest in Victorian/Edwardian murder cases and eventually the whole lifestyle of that period. I think I actually preferred series two, in which the 'lady killers', giving a different meaning to the same term, were not women murderers but men who killed women (with the exception of the Bywaters/Thompson case, in which the victim was a cuckolded husband). If series one was a 4/5 then series two was a 5/5 - I have pre-ordered mine already.
