On a cold night in 1974, the nanny for a privileged London family was brutally murdered. Even more shocking was the prime suspect: John Bingham, the 7th Earl of Lucan, who suddenly vanished into thin air. Decades later, the scandalous true story of Lord Lucan remains among Britain's most baffling unsolved mysteries. Did he really murder his children's nanny? Is he still alive somewhere? Did his personal unraveling prove too threatening to his posh, private world? Rory Kinnear (Skyfall, Penny Dreadful) stars in Lucan as the desperate aristocrat with a gambling problem and a bitter, crumbling marriage. This gripping two-part drama also stars Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who, Shallow Grave), Catherine McCormack (Braveheart), and Michael Gambon (Harry Potter, Fortitude). Then, The Trial of Lord Lucan imagines Lucan's day in court, as the jury is presented with actual evidence and recorded testimony to decide what really happened that notorious night. Julian Wadham (The Iron Lady), Lynsey Baxter (The French Lieutenant's Woman), and Anthony Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) star.
