Time travel is always a problematic concept and when used in such a disposable way as this it really ruins any credibility the story has. Deus ex Machina is alive and well it seems. With a character as potent as Jack the Ripper it is such a waste to have him as mere monster material, and probably disrespectful to his actual crimes.
