In 2000, former royal dresser Jane Andrews’ murder of Tom Cressman shocked and fascinated Britain in equal measure. She was portrayed as a jealous obsessive – a “bunny boiler” who couldn’t take the rejection of her wealthy lovers.
Twenty years on society has changed, and with Britain’s first murder conviction overturned on the basis of domestic violence, this is the definitive account of Jane’s rise and fall
With never-seen-before interviews with Jane’s family and psychiatrist as well as all of the key players in the police investigation and prosecution, the film asks whether Jane’s friends and psychiatrist’s lingering doubts about the case are justified. Would she be tried differently today? Or are the prosecution and Tom’s family right to consider her “a danger to all men”?
