Summary
A member of the House of Lords dies in a shockingly silly way, leaving his estate to his son. Unfortunately, his son is insane: he thinks he is Jesus Christ. He is "cured" of that affliction, only to become Jack the Ripper incarnate, a bloodthirsty Tory who is therefore sane and eminently acceptable to the House of Lords. An irreverent look at Britain's class system that peers behind the closed doors of the aristocracy
