Default The Alienist Official Trailer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9867sT-Y1M

The premier here in the U.S. is January 22nd on TNT.

I highly recommend the book by Caleb Carr (who I believe is a Ripperologist).

Hi c.d.

Yes I am also looking forward to this mini-series. Not sure though about Caleb Carr being a Ripperologist. I should say he might be termed a Ripperologist only insofar as he wrote a novel about Ripper-like murders of young men set in the United States.

All the best

Chris

Hi Chris,

I could swear that I saw a youtube video in which he was interviewed about the Ripper murders although I could be mistaken. Maybe it had to do with the similarities to his own novel.

Cd, thanks for this.

I'm looking forward to it.

It looks as though they have spared no expense on the production values.

Cheers c.d. This could be a good one. I read the book years ago then then follow up The Angel Of Darkness. I might have to reread The Alienist. I dont think I have the TNT channel though

c.d. according to wiki Carr was on The History Channelís Jack The Ripper Phantom Of Death In 1995 as an expert. Heís a Military Historian with an eventful bio. Quite a disturbing family background although I only skimmed through it.
