This mini-series, starring Michael Caine, stays in the past and deals with the "factual" story behind Jack the Ripper presenting over a dozen people who may be the infamous killer. The movie even goes so far as to solve the case (it turns out to be the Queen's doctor, Sir William Gull, and his coach driver). The locations ring authentic, the period costumes and horse-drawn carriages capture the time period, and there is actually some blood spilled. Of course, every time a woman is killed the film cuts to a wall or a photograph getting splattered--but strategically sprayed blood is better than no blood at all, considering the subject matter. Although this movie satisfyingly documents the murders and puts the slayings in a different perspective, I nevertheless felt like I was watching an ancient episode of America's Most Wanted.
