One of the most thorough investigations into the case of Jack the Ripper seen on TV. Stratford Johns and Frank Windsor re-examine the unsolved case, trawling through the archives in an effort to uncover the true identity of the killer. This six-part TV drama attempts to unravel all the conspiracy theories and contradictory information that confronted the police during their original investigation. Interspersed with dramatised documentary-style scenes set in the 19th century, they examine suspects and theories and also delve into the lesser known suggestions, including the Royal conspiracy.
