This has to be the best film to come out of the Hammer studios. A fascinating story and acted with perfection. Angharad Rees and Eric Porter blend together beautifully and the music adds to the atmosphere perfectly. Two minor imperfections are, firstly a matter of continuity. On the way to St Pauls, an injured Doctor Pritchard sits on his left in the carriage with his son on the right: on arrival at St Pauls it is the son that sits on the left. Also I do not understand why the Ripper family are not credited, both have larger parts than the maid played by Molly Weir. A beautiful film nevertheless and still out on dvd.
