Dial Medicine for Murder: The Story of Shipman and Bodkin-Adams

Presented in association with the British American Business Council Charlotte

"The subject matter is sensational..." –The Times

Dr. John Bodkin-Adams: 160+ suspected victims. Dr. Harold Shipman: 450+ suspected victims. Potentially the two biggest serial killers in history. A pathological discussion by two good Doctors, who had connections to both.

Presented in the style of a docudrama, Dial Medicine for Murder relates and compares the dark stories of Dr. Harold Shipman and Dr. John Bodkin-Adams, two of the most dangerous and infamous British serial killers of the 20th century. Dr. Harry Brünjes and Dr. Andrew Johns offer their professional assessment of the two figures from a psychopathological perspective, juxtaposing the arrest, trial and aftermath of the two cases. The performance has been one of the great successes of the Edinburgh festival in the last two years, going on to tour across the U.K.
