  Jack the Ripper on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  Drawing their own conclusions
  Double Oscar Winner Michael Caine heads a star-studded cast in this acclaimed dramatisation of the hunt for the notorious serial killer who preyed on the prostitutes of London's East End - Jack the Ripper.

Made for the 1988 centenary of the infamous murders, the production team were granted unprecedented access to Home Office files on the Ripper case – the resulting two-part miniseries winning Caine a Golden Globe award for his portrayal of the dogged Scotland Yard detective Frederick Abberline. Co-starring Lewis Collins (The Professionals), Jane Seymour (Live and Let Die, Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman), Ray McAnally (My Left Foot, The Mission), and Armand Assante (Judge Dredd, American Gangster). Jack the Ripper is presented here as a brand-new High Definition restoration from original film materials, in its original aspect ratio with a brand-new Dolby 5.1 mix.

In the autumn of 1888, Chief Inspector Abberline is sent to investigate the murder and mutilation of a prostitute. On the teeming streets of Whitechapel others soon meet the same fate and a press frenzy ensues. With "Jack the Ripper" terrorising London and both the police and outraged public clamouring for a conclusion, Abberline and his partner, Godley, work doggedly through their list of suspects – more than one of whom has royal connections. On Blu-ray and DVD: 27th March 2017.
