There is one interesting extra in this set. It’s called A Very British Murder: Part One The New Taste for Blood. It’s a 3 part series that originally aired on BBC Four in 2013 and is presented by Dr. Lucy Worsley. I have to admit that when I started to watch it, I didn’t think it was going to be any good. I was wrong. It is actually quite good and informative. It’s a series that chronicles how murder became popularized in the UK by the media and this first episode examines this from the 1800’s before the Metropolitan Police formed and what this affect had on the people of London. Murder that happened during this period spawned songs and plays based on the real murders that took place. This was the start of what we would eventually read in books and watch on TV and film. Dr. Worsley is very interesting as she not only presents but has a massive hand in telling the story. A very surprising extra and I am looking forward to the other two installments.
