Jack the Ripper. My life as a suspect.

In this show, I Robert Instons(is) narrates as informatively as I am able on the mythology that surrounds the murders in Whitechapel in 1888. Through the voices of Queen Victoria herself, the Commissioner of Police and a notorious suspect nicknamed Leather Apron, a picture emerges that may unsettle. Was there a cover up? Did the press invent Jack the Ripper? Did they write at least some of the boastful letters from a fictional and teasing perpetrator? I feel we can never know enough on this subject and I work to instill a more realistic and compassionate approach. On this subject, it is very difficult to establish historical facts and uncorroborated information.
