Fortunately, before this documentary blows up before our eyes, we get our first treat: Stephen P. Ryder, editor of Casebook: Jack the Ripper, shows up with his characteristic cool and calm demeanor to interject a bit of sanity to this potentially laughable take on the murders.
Ryder and author/historian Stewart P. Evans are both featured in between Cornwell's and Edwards' testimonies, as is Louis B. Schlesinger, PhD., of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, but the deck is stacked heavily in favor of Cornwell's Walter Sickert theory.
(Where have we heard that before?) This most appropriately sums up the design of this effort, which even includes a commercial for Cornwell's new book, that asks us to "take my forensic challengeâ€¦" Stephen Ryder
and Stewart Evans supply enough credibility and clarity to almost strike a balance, but ultimately cannot save this tragic documentary.
Well, maybe to a degree, but in the end a disappointment.

The removal of a couple of internal organs with such anatomical skill has led to the common theory that the perpetrator possessed good surgical knowledge, often leading to suspicions that the killer was a butcher or a doctor; "in the opinion of most of the surgeons who examined the bodies, most believed that the killer had to have some degree of anatomical knowledge to do what he did" (Ryder, 2006).
Since he was never apprehended by police, this murderer has become one of history's most infamous figures.
With many popular websites such as Amazon.com and Ebay.com offering millions of texts, (Bradley, 2002:111), it was possible to purchase books recommended by leading academics such as Steven Ryder of Casebook.org.
(2006) states: "The press was also partly responsible for creating many myths surrounding the Ripper and ended up turning a sad killer of women into a 'bogeyman', who has now become one of the most romantic figures in history"
