This might seem like a weird question but am I the only one who finds himself stopping to remember just how long ago the Whitechapel murders were? I think because we keep the case alive in our collective consciousness and look at it with modern-day thinking, it's easy to forget. We've had two World Wars, the splitting of the atom, and the moon landings, since that time. Victorian London might as well have been a completely different world.
Just a thought. I don't expect this to generate much buzz!
My great grandmother saw pretty much all those advancements, she’d talk in wonder of the first car, the plane and helicopter, man landing on the moon, electricity, running water amazed her every time she turned a tap on. (She was born in 1888)

There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.
