About the show

Ruth works in the kind of nightclubs where there’s more than just a drink on offer. The girls work hard, play hard and dream of a movie-star life. Then she meets the wealthy, womanising David, a racing driver with whom she becomes obsessed. Fame comes - but not in the way she imagines.


Why does their relationship end in murder? Why does she plead not guilty but offer no defence? And who is she trying to protect?


A dramatization of the true story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, taking a fresh look at the woman behind the headlines.
