        I've been watching the American Ripper series.

        Why can't you 'unwatch' stuff?

          I don't know.

          I've been watching it because I'm interested in Holmes, but Mr. Mudgett is terrific at ignoring the evidence that doesn't support his theory (no match in the handwriting samples, for instance), and veering off in different directions. Now he's digging up his ancestor's grave to see if it is occupied!

            It's unfortunate that the Ripper field today is plagued by such pseudo scientific investigations. So much promised and so little gained. As many of us can predict beforehand!

              As you will be aware, a theory about Jack the Ripper doesn't have to have credibility. You just have to attach the name "Jack the Ripper" to your suspect and you can get a publisher and obtain publicity for your book. No matter how empty your ideas about the case might be, it's going to get attention. Unfortunately, that's what we've come down to.

              Best regards

              Chris
              Absolutely, Chris. I thought Moore's "Dance of the Gull-Catchers" was harsh on Ripperology in general, but I've come to realize it was fairly honest.

                In my opinion, most Ripperologists are honest and genuine in wanting to advance the field. Rather, it's those who come into Ripperology to write about a specific suspect -- not really Ripperologists at all -- who give the field a bad name.

                  Re Holmes: The strange thing is, the subject is well worth a serious look, but that has been all glossed over in the tv show.

                  The object seems to be to glamourise Holmes and pay no respect to his victims.

                  Particularly today, the anniversary of Mrs Nichols death, it is worth noting that often the most fascinating part of this field of research is uncovering the victims stories.

                    Sorry, Dusty, but in which way is H. H. Holmes "well worth a serious look" as you put it, from our perspective?

                    Holmes was a Chicago killer, plain and simple, and was not the Whitechapel murderer.

                    His motives don't match up in the least with the motives of the killer in the East End of London.

                      Worth a serious documentary subject matter. Nothing to do with jtr.
