Episode Recap

When a bizarre slashing murder takes place in a small western town, an English inspector soon turns up asking questions about the crime.

It is soon divulged that he is hot on the trail of Jack the Ripper, and thinks the killer is in the town, doing his usual dirty work.

Could the murderer be the town's doctor? Or the scarred, malevolent blacksmith? Or even the town's shady Sheriff or the brothel's madam, who the inspector finds himself getting close with?

The murders continue until the Ripper is finally flushed out, and brought down by the Dead Man's Gun.
