Doctor Ormond Sacker was a Scottish pathologist who was based in London during the 1890s.
He played rugby but had given up the sport by the 1890s. (AUDIO: The Ruthven Inheritance)
While his more refined colleague Professor George Litefoot was initially not terribly fond of the slovenly Dr Sacker, he eventually became a trusted ally of his and, to a lesser extent, Henry Gordon Jago. (AUDIO: The Bellova Devil)
On occasion, he assisted Sergeant Percival Quick with investigations being carried out by the Metropolitan Police Service, usually when Litefoot was not available. (AUDIO: The Theatre of Dreams)
He was a member of the Far-Off Travellers Club (AUDIO: The Bellova Devil) and was extremely fond of brandy, often mixing it with his tea even while working. (AUDIO: The Theatre of Dreams)
Sacker met his death between 1892 and 1893 when he was brutally torn apart by Lord Ruthven in his beastly form. (AUDIO: The Ruthven Inheritance)
Sacker had at least one child before his death; this child had at least one of their own, a son named Dave Sacker. (AUDIO: The Age of Revolution)
Jago once described Sacker as a "cross-eyed Caledonian". (AUDIO: The Bellova Devil)
Behind the scenes Edit
