I watched this program on sky two last night. Reeves suggests 5 main suspects at the start (kosminski, druitt, chapman, tumblety and cutbush) and uses several experts to narrow down these suspects (graphologist, medium, historian, profiler).
Using these at the end he names Tumblety most likely to be the killer.
I wasn't impressed with the program as i feel it left too much out.
I saw this when it was first aired and someone was kind enough to get hold of a copy on dvd. As soon as the name "Vic Reeves" popped up I expected shanninigans aplenty, and just could not get into the documentary.
I have just come across this thread.....made me laugh because a friend of mine from school played Polly Nichols in this !! ....she wanted MJK but Vic told her that his wife would be playing her and was rather rude !!
The same thoughts went through my head when i saw "Vic Reeves Investigates".
To be fair, he may well be best known for his marmite comedy (Shooting Stars stopped being funny a decade ago...) but Vic Reeves is also something of an authority on pirates, highwaymen and smugglers. I can see that JTR is a subject he must have wanted to make a documentary about, but get the feeling Sky wanted a Vic Reeves vehicle and not a JTR documentary.
