The Trouble Club presents Dr Fern Riddell, a cultural historian and an expert in sex, suffrage and entertainment in the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
Her first book, The Victorian Guide To Sex, tackled the myths of Victorian prudishness. Her latest book, Death In Ten Minutes, is an explosive account of the Suffragette bomber and birth control activist, Kitty Marion. Fern’s unique research into the suffragettes, taken from Death In Ten Minutes, was used in the BAFTA Nominated documentary ‘Suffragettes with Lucy Worsley’. Historical Consultant for the BAFTA award-winning BBC and Amazon drama Ripper Street, she advises on both Specialist Factual and Drama productions for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and Sky Arts, and has appeared as an expert historian for radio and television internationally.
