Neil Story

An award-winning historian, author and lecturer; Neil is the best selling author of over 50 books, including East End murders, Jack the Ripper A Grim Almanac and the hugely successful Jack the Ripper: The Dracula Secrets published in 2012 in which he undertook an in-depth investigation into the sources used by Bram Stoker during the writing of his seminal masterpiece. Gaining unprecedented access to the unique archives and uncovering a never before seen photograph of a very likely Police suspect, Storey shed new light on links between Stoker’s creation and the most infamous serial killer of all time.

Greg Baldock

Greg has been an avid fan of the Jack the Ripper case since his early teens, but has always been more concerned with the early part of the 19th century and the advent of the Napoleonic Wars. However, after studying History and then training as an actor, Greg discovered that the way to combine the best of both worlds was to sign himself up as a historical tour guide, and now he is engaged with all of the 1800s from beginning to end! Within ripper circles he is best known for his extensive knowledge of the history of the Metropolitan Police Service, its methods, uniform and equipment from its inception in 1829, something he reflects in the way dresses for work.
