Jack the Ripper Complete Mini-Series (DVD)
Stratford Johns and Frank Windsor star in this 1973 BBC drama.
The pair pit their wits together to re-examine the unsolved case of Jack the Ripper, trawling through archives to uncover the killer’s true identity.
Stratford Johns and Frank Windsor first starred together as the popular characters Barlow and Watt in the long-running police series Z-Cars and then later in the spin-offs Softly, Softly and Barlow at Large.
This six-part TV drama is riddled with conspiracy theories, contradictory information and insufficient evidence. The confusion and difficulty that Barlow and Watt confronted with echo the troubles that the police faced during their original investigation.
Told in a discussion based theme and interspersed with dramatised documentary-style scenes set in the 19th century, they examine not only the prominent suspects and theories but also delve into the lesser known suggestions, including the Royal conspiracy.
Will they succeed in finding the true identity of Jack The Ripper?
