On the greatest-ever H. G. Wells adaptation, in which Jack the Ripper escapes . . . to the future.

One hundred and twenty-six year ago today, H. G. Wells’ seminal science-fiction novella, The Time Machine, was first published. The story of an Victorian English scientist (and gentleman inventor) who builds a big ‘ol steampunk time machine and uses it to travel to the year A.D. 802,701 (where perilous adventures with gentle Eloi and not-so-gentle Morlocks ensue), The Time Machine is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel. Without it, there’d be no Avengers: Endgame or Back to the Future or Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. There’d be no Hot Tub Time Machine or Deadpool 2 or Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. There’d be no 12 Monkeys or Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban or Timecop. There’d be no Terminator, for Christ’s sake. We owe Mr. Wells and his unbridled imagination a tremendous cultural debt, is what I’m saying.

If we are to understand the current events in the Jack the Ripper case, it is crucial to remember the events of Autumn, 1888, in London’s East End. At the time, Whitechapel was home to some of the UK’s poorest citizens. Because of the neighborhood’s proximity to the Thames, it became a refuge for Jewish immigrants fleeing persecution in Russia and Poland. Housing, jobs, and food were scarce and incredibly hard for women to procure. Many of these women turned to prostitution. At least five would become victims of a notorious serial killer.
