Charles William Lestrange was a newly promoted Detective Inspector in the Metropolitan Police when the THE AUTUMN OF TERROR, as it came to be known, reached its grizzly height in 1888. Now, thirteen years later, and ably assisted by Samuel Edwards, formerly Detective Constable Edwards of H Division, and Samuel Edward’s “close friend” Miss Elsie Fordham, rising star of the music hall stage, ex-Inspector Lestrange is touring the country to rehearse again for our titillation and delight the ghoulish events in Victorian Whitechapel which have been a source of universal fascination since the 1880s.
The Ripper Files will star Jennifer Biddall (Hollyoaks), Mark Homer (Eastenders) and David Gilbrook.
