Welcome to actor Richard Walker’s scene setter. It’s ten minutes of literary, cultural and historical background for “the year of the psychopath.” For, in other words, Richard’s Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper Virtual Tour.
And the other thing – there’s no missing it of course – is Richard’s delivery, his trained voice. It’s compelling, thrilling, chilling.
Aside here, but an utterly pertinent aside – one of my all-time favourite London Walks stories is that remark by that young woman from Montana – entranced by Richard’s voice, she said, “I want Richard Walker in my pocket narrating my life.”
