  Film | Presumed guilty
Edith Thompson did not know that she was being executed.
The makers of Another Life claim that Edith Thompson was "hanged for her lifestyle", because she was too lively, spoke French, bobbed her hair and liked sex; and because the middle-class society of the time couldn't cope with her disregard of its moral code.
She was found guilty of murder because the jury believed the evidence against her, in spite of a powerful performance in her defence by one of the most skilled barristers of the time and a summing up by the judge which legal experts, then and now, consider totally fair and, if anything, in her favour.

Finally, when Edith's body was re-interred in Brookwood cemetery 46 years later, the authorities didn't even have the heart to inform her sister who had been prevented from placing any flowers on the grave.

 Amazon.com: Fred & Edie: A Novel: Books: Jill Dawson   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Dawson's third novel (after Tricks of the Light and Magpie) strikingly and elegantly blends fact and fiction in a reimagining of the events surrounding the spectacular 1922 London trial of Edith Thompson and her lover, Frederick Bywaters, who were convicted and hanged for murdering Edith's husband, Percy.
In 1922, Edith Thompson, a millinery clerk, and Frederick Bywaters, who worked in a ship's laundry, were arraigned in the Old Bailey for the stabbing death of Edie's loutish husband, Percy—he as the perpetrator and she as co-conspirator.
While at first Edith Thompson seems the "vain, silly" woman others thought her, the author beautifully develops and shows us her depth and longing until we are both transported and moved by her plight.

 Publisher description for Library of Congress control number 2001051876   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
In a brilliant act of literary license, novelist and poet Jill Dawson has transformed the sensational true story of Britain's infamous condemned adulteress Edith Thompson into a dramatic novel of passion, murder, and scandal, as seductive as it is shocking.
One night in London in 1922, a thirty-two-year-old clerk named Percy Thompson is stabbed to death as he walks home from the theater.
The spectacular case that follows captures the imagination of an entire nation, as Percy's wife, Edith, and her young lover, Frederick Bywaters, are imprisoned, summarily tried, and hanged for murder, even as a petition to spare their lives receives more than one million signatures.

 Another Life - Natasha Little, Ioan Gruffudd, Nick Moran
ANOTHER LIFE, the true life story of Edith Thompson, a woman wrongly accused of her husband’s murder in Edwardian England, stars Natasha Little and Ioan Gruffudd.
When Edith Thompson (Natasha Little) meets her sister’s suitor and dashing childhood tearaway Freddie Bywaters (Ioan Gruffudd), he seems to offer all the promise and romance that is lacking in her strained and passionless marriage to Percy (Nick Moran).
When a dark figure steps out of the shadows to ruthlessly stab Percy to death after a trip to the theatre with Edith, it becomes all too apparent the sway she holds over the impressionable and impulsive Freddie.
