The Ripper (2020)

TV-MA DocumentaryCrime

Once upon a time in Yorkshire...


For five years, from 1975 to 1980, the Yorkshire Ripper murders cast a dark shadow over the lives of women in the North of England. 13 women were dead and the police seemed incapable of catching the killer. No one felt safe – and every man was a suspect.
