We've said it before and we'll say it again. The standard of true crime on Netflix is practically always on point.

Their latest offering of the genre is titled 'The Ripper'.

It is based on Peter Sutcliffe, dubbed the Yorkshire Ripper.

For five years, between 1975 to 1980, the Yorkshire Ripper terrorised women in the North of England.

Thirteen women were killed and the police seemed incapable of catching the killer.

The documentary's interview subjects include investigators, journalists, survivors, and victims' families.

The team who created 'Don’t F**k With Cats' are behind the four-part series.

Alongside the trailer on Twitter, Netflix posted the names of the women who Sutcliffe killed, to mark their memory.


Sutcliffe died in University Hospital of North Durham last weekend at the age of 74 after, according to rumours, refusing treatment for COVID-19.

'The Ripper' will stream on Netflix from 16 December.
