"American Ripper"?? -- Will play the video later at home and try to figure this out. I'm very interested in all of crimes in the United States that were described as possibly the work of London's Ripper, or simply as "Ripper-like".

The documentary is about whether or not the American murderer H.H. Holmes was Jack the Ripper.

Re H. H. Holmes: Good grief, another descendant out to make money! Conned somebody at History Channel, I guess.

Re "Ripper Street": I don't think the most recent episodes (I've only seen up thru the fourth season, I think) are as awful as some here have been saying, but I do admit some have been a bit like a LVP soap opera, with people keeping secrets from other people all the time.

Still-- I will happily watch anything featuring the gorgeous Matthew MacFadyen, of the wonderful eyes!

Funny I belong to some ancestors sites, and someone posted today that they had just found that Holmes was some sort of distant cousin.

Ugh! Of course, Holmes was really a Mudgett, I think. Not a great name to turn up in one's family tree..

I saw "Who Do You Think You Are?" with actress Courtney Cox-- her mother's family turned out to be descendants of English royalty!
So you just never know...
