The Ripper is the bone-chilling new true-crime documentary series. In this exclusive interview, Directors Ellena Wood and Jesse Vile break down what drew them to the horrifying story and discuss the terror inflicted over Britain by the Yorkshire Ripper murders.
For five years, between 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..

Overall it was okay, but left much to be desired. Would have liked to see it sift through more details of the evidence, crime scenes, the investigation and witnesses. The feminist part was annoying as hell, when it was obvious for anyone to see that the police invested enormous resources to the case, and a bunch of women complain about the police and society at large not taking it seriously enough, while also acknowledging that society at large, including men, where at a boiling point due to the killer not being caught.

Let’s not get all PC about some of the victims yes none deserved to die but if some are portrayed as decent women for example if Wilma McCann would’ve been a decent mother she’d have stayed in that night instead of going on the piss and leaving her daughter Sonia who was 7 years old(yes SEVEN) in charge of 3 younger kids(FFS the other McCann’s got slated and rightly so of leaving their kids alone whilst they enjoyed themselves) and she might still be alive,Richard McCann now whinges that Sutcliffe shouldn’t be called The Ripper but the hypocrite refers to Sutcliffe as the Ripper in his book,how the fuck at 5 years old he can remember everything is absolute bullshit(the guy has made a living off his mother’s murder) she was about to have her kids taken off her as they lived in squalor and were neglected but nothing much is said about this.

*Peter Sutcliffe* from *Bradford, West Yorkshire, England,* who was just 1 of at least 3 famous serial killers from *Bradford* in the same decade. The Maths and English block at my old school, is just around the corner from his house, where his wife still lives today. One of his victims was killed less than a mile down the road from me. I won't be watching this documentary for a while at least, as I already know the story. I'll probably just skip through it looking for some locations to add to *IMDB* like I did with the *Manhunt: The Search for the Yorkshire Ripper* (1999) documentary by *ITV,* who have another documentary about him on the way soon. I've just noticed the cast credits for the 1999 documentary are a bit of a mess, so I'll probably end up sorting them out too.

If you have a psychopath roaming around in the seventies with a hammer and a knife there's not that much you can do to stop him. No cctv, anpr, credit card transactions or cell phone pings. It wasn't because the police didn't care about wymyns! The reason we know about Sutcliffe today is entirely because his ilk are unfathomably rare.

I just finished it and all along towards the last episode, I had this question in my mind - could they have met him already during the earlier round of inquiry and just let that slip away? And I was right. I still think his murders were delibrate and he should have rotten in a prison cell.

The feminist woman interviewed in this was so ridiculous it was comical! She has such a hatred toward men and society that she compared the curfew by police to protect woman as them actually trying to suppress woman and their independence and rights! Lmao! What an idiot!

Maureen Long wasnt the first survivor. Of the victims he confessed to attacking, Anna Rogulskji, Olive Smelt, Tracey Brown and Marcella Claxton were attacked and survived before her. Also, there were many other likely victims such as Gloria Wood and Debbie Schlesinger attacked prior.

Wasn't much different from the hundreds of other ripper docs, nothing new in the way of facts about the case, what's the point of making something that's says nothing that hasn't been said countless times before ?

I was gripped by the series, growing up a young lad I never took much notice. He was acomplete nutcase, sorry if that offends anyone but come on, how else do you describe him. These 13 murders were no accident, carefully planned and executed. I felt it was a little drawn out after he was accidently arrested with Womens street protests. Femenists defying orders again and still today asking for apologies for calling sex workers prostitutes, they are are'nt they and referring to none prostitutes as innocent is right as kurb crawling is illeagal.. There should have been more on the court case and maybe a glimpse into his life behind bars afterall, millions must have been spent interviewing him and keeping him alive. It's seems almost normal these days to blame every death on Covid but just how did he catch it, was he treated or was it just convenient fot the stats? Either way none of them girls deserved to die and modern day lefties have to realise life was a lot tougher back then, foreveryone and its now history, History that we have to learn from and not have to apologise for!

Andy Laptew said he took Maureen Long out to a pub after her attack to see if she could spot her attacker and that he spent £78.. absolute rubbish as you think a pint of lager/bitter would’ve been around 40p at that time.

I thought this series beautifully captured the sheer chaos that these tragedies caused. Very much like a "Wolf in the Henhouse" kind of paranoia. The focus was never on Sutcliffe, but the atmosphere he created and hid himself away in. The police chasing dead leads, their staunch and almost deliberate sullying of the victims personal lives to fit their idea of who they were chasing, their complete incompetence in finding and catching a monster of this magnitude, and the tragic consequences of their total lack of response to MUCH earlier warning signs of Sutcliffes behavioral patterns in attacks AS EARLY as 1969. Beautifully done, all of you!

Had to stop watching the series as it was becoming about feminism. Women were being murdered, families terrorized, but some spoiled privileged women were marching, making it about themselves, and feminism -- and criticizing police, and society. Imagine if they spent that time and energy criticizing the killer, or even trying to find him. Could people please stop misrepresenting their propaganda as documentaries?

@Wane felicia oh yes so the only logical thing to do after police has warned every women not to go out alone at night is to go out alone just so you can express your freedom not giving a fuck about risking your life. One of them almost got murdered because she just wanted to party and be free. Not the best time to become a feminist. If you are dumb enough to risk your life just so you can show every man that you are powerful then do it but shut the fuck up if you get murdered or attacked because it is your own god damn fault.

I was enjoying the series (enjoying is probably the wrong word considering the topic) until episode 3, when it lost all credibility by going down the "Feminist" route and their obvious hatred of all men! This was supposed to be a documentary about a mad mad who terrorised and murdered women in the 70's, but instead, the two directors (both women, suprise suprise!!) couldn't help taking a few pot shots at men, by including the views of a raving feminist. So tired of this bulls*it narrative which is peddled by women who have no desire to be equal to men, but a desire to be above them.

@createdsummer no, I'm familiar with the case and I did watch all the episodes, yes the police bungled the investigation and were out of their depth, but the one thing they did right was to warn women about the dangers of walking the streets alone at night

@hitman777100 I thought it was quite an interesting take, history is static when it's about one person or a great event, I think explaining the story in socio-political context of Yorkshire was a lot more interesting because I'm into social history. Totally understand your umbrage to the politics but if it was a female killing guys and I was told not to go out; I'd probably have a similar reaction, I would've preferred more insight into how the deaths impacted the lives of the victim's family, wilma mccans son had an extremley fascinating life after her murder and it's worthy of study too, just my take

A close family friend was a victim of the Yorkshire Ripper and it really hit home seeing this documentary being made. I'm glad there's something out there addressing and documenting what happened. I will always remember my mum telling me how scared she was to leave the house to work not knowing whether or not she would make it home that evening.

I'm so sorry to hear that I really am. My mum got offered a lift by him when she was walking home from work in Halifax, she told me it wasn't until the news broke they'd caught him she realised exactly who it was that had offered her a lift. I'm sorry about your friend.
