Dark Angel, the long-awaited 2-part television drama based on the extraordinary true story of Mary Anne Cotton, will premiere on Monday 31st October at 9pm on ITV, cast by HH client SAM JONES and starring LAURA MORGAN and THOMAS HOWES.
Mary Ann – played by Joanna Froggatt – is a notorious serial killer, a poisoner whose methods leave no visible scars, allowing her tally of victims to mount unsuspected by a Victorian society unable to conceive a woman capable of such terrible crimes. Travelling around the North East, she inveigles herself into the homes of unsuspecting families, marrying and creating new families of her own – before killing them, taking their money and moving on.
Through adultery, bigamy, fraud and murder, Mary Ann betters herself socially and financially. But the more she kills, the greater the risk her heinous crimes will finally be exposed.
Don’t miss the premiere on the 31st! Here’s the trailer:
