My favorite line from Holmes' great-great grandson came when he was talking to the DNA scientist, who gave him the negative match results. He tells her that he "was scared to death" that she would tell him the blood was a match!

If that is true, we have to suspend our belief that this man would have loved to have solved the JtR mystery, and that he would have loved to prove his ancestor was Jack. Even though the whole premise of the show is to prove that Gramps was JtR!

This guy is unbelievable, but I keep watching. It's like watching a train wreck. You can't turn away. I just feel sorry for the people watching the show who might believe this bull.

Edited to add: They depict Jack attacking Mary Nichols, whom they say was definitely the first Whitechapel murder (Otherwise, the timing would have been off for Holmes to be JtR). They also did the same for the second through the fourth women murdered. In these depictions, I actually laughed, because the prostitutes are dressed in really nice Victorian dresses, with lots of nice pearl jewelry, etc. It was so off in the way they would have dressed. One even had beautiful fitted leather gloves that matched her outfit.
I haven't seen the program but love your comment, Beth.

I noted the upcoming Ripper conference encourages some people to dress in costume and as an artist who works with fabrics I got to thinking how a person would dress to look like one of the C-5 victims. The proper colors would be black, black, grey, brown... The end result would look like a ragged street person in long skirts.

It is always humorous when JtR's victims are depicted in nicely tailored red velvet jackets or wild west saloon girl attire and with dyed ostrich feathers in their bonnets. There are some needs in filming so I understand the use of color but in reality Jack's victims must have fairly well blended into their grimy, nighttime street environments.

I think most folks know my opinion of this series...but as to your opinion, has there been ANYTHING of value you've gleaned from it so far ?

No, no value to it so far. I just keep watching, but this idea of Holmes paying off someone to be executed in his place...it's just too much. I am interested in Holmes, and I am interested in JtR, so I continue to watch. I still haven't found a nugget of good information, though.

Edited to add: Thank you for the nice comment and your post, Anna! I agree with your assessment of what the C-5 would have worn. Definitely not a set of pearl jewelry, either!
