'Would you like to see my African curiosities?'
On Crime Network there was "The Whitechapel Murders" with Stewart P Evans and Paul Gainey discussing Tumblety. It was a good documentary, and although I remember it from a while ago, last night I managed to actually sit and watch it.
There were several press reports presented, both foreign and domestic, about Tumblety.
There were several photographs of both London and the USA from the period, and there were some interesting reconstructions.
Later in the evening on Sky 3, there was Vic Reeves Investigates Jack the Ripper, which starts off with Vic and a line up of the usual suspects, Druitt, Cutbush, Chapman, Kosminski, and Tumblety.
Vic, with the help of a graphologist, geo-profiler, and "ahem" a psychic police officer! Narrow it down to Tumblety.
What amused me was the way Vic was feeding the officer info, and when he took him to Mitre Square the officer picked up on a victim and a suspect. Now the guy is a former police officer, and somehow, I think he might have known about the case!
Vic also walked down Hanbury Street and pointed out that Annie Chapman was found dead in a doorway. He then stood in a rather modern looking doorway!
So I take it you missed Most Haunted Live jumping on the Jack the Ripper bandwaggon again,last night.
Believe me,it was up to it's usual standards.
They were talking about London's haunted past,in general.Ross pipes up about people being passionate about crimes....look at JTR for instance,there's a famous americal authoress called Patricia Cornwell,who writes crime novels...she's wrote a very good book on Jack the Ripper..spent about 4 million,proving that Sickert was the Ripper....it's the 120th anniversary THIS WEEK (hello,your broadcasting on it).
My son said...good job we didn't go to that,you'd have been removed from the place for calling out,wouldn't you!...and he walked out of the room! ...........answer.....yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A black dog must have got into Aldgate station on Saturday night,because just about everyone saw him!!..he was a real cutie...and kept wagging his tail like he knew everyone was going ahhhhhh!..he was more of a star than the crew were all weekend.
