ITV are to produce a two-part drama to mark the 40th anniversary of Lord Lucan’s mysterious disappearance. Rory Kinnear, Christopher Eccleston and Sir Michael Gambon will appear in the drama, which will begin filming in London in August 2013.
The 7th Earl of Lucan vanished after the death of his children’s nanny, Sandra Rivett, in November 1974 and an inquest subsequently ruled that he murdered her. Sandra Rivett was found dead at the home of Lord Lucan’s estranged wife in the elegant and affluent Belgravia area of London. Lady Lucan was also attacked but managed to escape to a local pub. Lord Lucan disappeared and his Ford Corsair car was later found abandoned and soaked in blood in Newhaven, East Sussex.
The Lord Lucan murder mystery was straight out of the pages of an Agatha Christie or Dorothy L Sayer’s murder mystery, that unfortunately lacked the guile and poise of their iconic sleuths Hercules Poirot and Lord Peter Wimsey and consequently went unsolved. The addition of the suspected murder weapon, a blood splattered piece of lead piping, added a Cluedo-esque twist to the case. Any fans of the murder mystery board game Cluedo will know that one of the murder weapons is a piece of lead piping!!
Lord Lucan was officially declared dead by the High Court in 1999. Since his intriguing disappearance there have been numerous “sightings” around the world, elevating Lord Lucan’s status into the realms of British crime myth, only matched by “Jack The Ripper”.
