After Mary Jane Kelly's murder, there is a scene where Abberline hands Gull a photo of her body. That photo is an actual crime scene photo of the real Mary Jane Kelly.

Ken Bones, George Sweeney and Edward Judd all played the same parts in the unfinished Barry Foster/David Wickes Thames TV drama.

The position of Mary Kelly's bed as viewed from the window into which Thomas Bowyer peered is wrong. It is shown with the foot of the bed closest to the window, when in fact from that angle the view should have been the same view of the bed as shown in the photograph of Mary Jane Kelly's remains (which was found by Donald Rumbelow).

Annie Chapman's body was never photographed at the murder site. Only a post-autopsy photograph of her head and shoulders exists.

Mary Jane Kelly is shown singing a song shortly before Jack the Ripper enters her room. The song she is singing is not the song she was reported as having sung on the night of her murder, "A Violet From Mother's Grave."
