Hallie Rubenhold’s 2008 work Lady Worsley’s Whim is a scholarly and highly entertaining account of the 1782 Criminal Conversation trial of the era. The details of the personal lives of Sir Richard Worsley, 7th Baron of Appuldercombe, his wife Lady Seymour Worsley and her lover George Bisset riveted society and, through the newspapers and the action in the courts, the general public.

BBC Radio 4’s Book at Bedtime programme produced a very enjoyable reading by Rosamund Pike and it’s available to listen to at Four Georges Archive
