Macabre London

05-02-2024 • 33 mins

Two actors met in London but both had quite different backstories. Their friendship soon turned into a bitter jealous rivalry, one which would result in murder, minutes before one of them was to take to the stage.


Today on Macabre London, we uncover the murder of William Terris at The Adelphi Theatre.
