    Emilia Fox? does not come over very well without a script. Why not use a real female forensic pathologist rather than an actress pretending to be a pathologist ? I would be interested in the opinions of an expert.

      May I suggest you obtain a copy of my book “Jack the Ripper-The real truth “ in that there are interviews with a number of medical experts including Dr Biggs a modern day Working forensic pathologist, who opines not only on the WM murders but on the torsos as well

          I think the BBC releasing a new documentary is less to do with the possibility of new insights into the case, and more to do with the fact that we are in a year that ends with an 8.
          A nice round 130 years since the killings is reason enough for them wanting a documentary, which will naturally air in the autumn.
          Having said that, I hope itís a blinder.

            "It's no secret that a lot of the documentaries that studios throw our way ó both on the television and in the cinema ó are bloated with misinformation. Most of them are either propaganda or just pop sensationalism. Many of us enjoy watching these for the entertainment value; it's fun, just as it was intended. But there are those of us who hope to actually be enlightened and informed; but unless we happen to have actual expertise on the subject being presented, we have no practical way to know whether what we're watching is good education or just propaganda."
