The finest documentary ever made about JtR!!!!
21 October 2002 | by (Perth, Western Australia) – See all my reviews

The popular detectives of BBC's "Softly, Softly" - Det. Chief Supt. Barlow (Stratford Johns) & Det. Chief Supt. Watt (Frank Windsor) - take a "busman's holiday" as they take a week off their busy careers to read over the files of the infamous Whitechapel Murderer - Jack the Ripper - in an attempt to discern his probable identity from the evidence provided.

JACK THE RIPPER (a.k.a. "The Ripper File") by John Lloyd & Elwyn Jones is truly a milestone in both JtR Documentary & Drama, where the key players (in true BBC style) vocalise only what was said on record.

Shown in six 50 minute episodes ("The First Two", "Double Event", "Butchery", "Panic", "Suspects" & "The Highest in the Land?") it is still the most accurate depiction to date.
