Mary Anne "Polly" Nichols was a Whitechapel prostitute who was murdered by Jack the Ripper in 1888.
Polly Nichols had been the first victim, although some people at the time believed it had been Martha Tabram. The dress she was murdered in was shabby and became nearly black with blood stains. It was later obtained by Spiker who sold it to Jacques Malacroix for three sovereigns in the Rising Sun tavern. Malacroix wore the dress and used the telepathic circuit of the Doctor's TARDIS to experience her brutal death. (PROSE: Matrix)
