On this episode of Canonical we start our exploration of the notorious Jack the Ripper case with a bit of background into 1880's London, and a look at the deaths of Polly Nichols, Annie Chapman and Elizabeth Stride. In part two, we'll cover the last of the Canonical Five Catherine Eddowes and Mary Jane Kelley, before looking at some theories, conspiracy or otherwise and taking a look at some of the suspects.
