Pritchard was hanged in 1865 for two murders. It is thought he committed at least one more. On the 28th July 1865, nearly ten thousand people gathered in what was then known as "Jail Square" in Glasgow, to witness the last public execution in Britain. The convict was a murderer - and a doctor - found guilty of administering poison with deliberate intent to kill. Physicians who kill are not uncommon - from the reviled Victorian Dr Crippen to one of the most prolific serial killers in recorded history, Dr Harold Shipman. Knowledge of the human body, and being placed in intimate trust by patients, lend themselves to a specific brand of murderer. But Edward Pritchard's killings were literally much closer to home, as this film reveals. Written by Annoymous See less
