Dramatisation of the true story of the notorious "acid bath murderer" John Haigh, who murdered women and disposed of their bodies in vats of acid in the 1940's. He was only caught when the gallstones of one of his victims, Mrs Durand-Deacon, failed to dissolve in the acid and were detected by the pathologist who examined the residue from the acid bath.

In 1945, the widow Olive Durand-Deacon describes her husband as having served in "The Glorious Glosters". Although a common nickname for the Gloucestershire Regiment, it derives from their heroism at the battle of the Imjin River during the Korean War - in 1951. See more
