Batman meets Jack the Ripper! And in a whole new time and place, old England in: The Victorian Age.
Never mind plotline inconsistencies. Imagine a different Batman, from a different time, and there you have it. It makes for interesting twists when characters you thought you knew turn out to be entirely different too, alternate timeline and all.
The story's well-paced but intense, with a script that's easy to follow yet does have a few surprises along the way. The animation's solid, as is the voice acting (mainly by Bruce Greenwood and Jennifer Carpenter). It's a refreshingly different viewpoint, a tale well told, and the only real flaw feels like an overall simplicity in sceneries and animation, as well as a few elements of the plot left untied at the end... and I don't mean Jack.
