Elizabeth Stride

Elizabeth Stride (ca. 1844-1888) was a Whitechapel prostitute who was murdered by Jack the Ripper on the same night as Catherine Eddowes. (PROSE: The Pit)

After a night of singing and drinking gin, Long Liz and her friend Josie parted company at 12:30 am on 30 September. P.C. Smith saw the 44 year old woman alive within half an hour of her death walking with a fair-haired man toward her home in Spitalfields. The man who offered to walk her home was Mac'atyde in a shimmer suit. Going down Berner Street at 12:45 am, he led her to Dutfield's Yard, a dead end where he shot a nerve paralytic into her neck. He then used her fear to harvest pheromones and the minerals produced by her kidneys.

Amy Pond learned about Lizzie Stride in school. The guide in a 2011 Ripper tour named her as the third canonical victim. (COMIC: Ripper's Curse)

Prior to her murder, she used to drink in the Red Tavern. (AUDIO: The Wax Princess)

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • References to her in the novels The Pit and Matrix don't identify her by name. Ripper's Curse provides a lot of information that puts details in the earlier novels in context.
