Late in the summer of 1888, a serial killer murdered at least five women in London's East End. The press at the time was quick to paint his victims as prostitutes, punished for their promiscuity.

This series tells the full story that has been glossed over again and again. This isn’t about Jack the Ripper, it’s about the women he killed. This episode is about Polly, murdered on August 31, 1888.
