Good episode, terrible accents.
14 July 2014 | by (hong kong) – See all my reviews

I am a great fan of this whole series, David warner shows some marvelous acting skills as the detective trying to capture Jack the Ripper in London, 1888. Suffice it to say, all is not as it seems and the Ripper may not be a normal person.

The story is well written, even if the plot is a little cheesy, but cheesy plots are half the fun of The Outer Limits. Sadly the episode is somewhat tainted by terrible accents. While, most of the main characters are played by British actors, most of the bit parts are played by Americans sounding like chimney sweeps who would make Bart Simpson's English accent seem convincing.

An altogether enjoyable episode, otherwise. But I feel I must also point out some quite obvious anachronisms, such as electric street lights, UV lamps on a camera and modern make-up
