It was, good work by two plod who were on a routine patrol, however It was a Wearside accent, don’t call those lot Geordies, they hate it.Pure luck they did get him. The fact they disregarded him based on the geordie accent angle was just bonkers.
The bit at the end where they show Wearside Jack reading the narrative of his letter is brilliant. He couldn’t t have dreamed he’d ever get caught, DNA from his saliva on the letter did for him. He should have got life really for hampering the investigation, without all the man hours looking for him resources could have been better used and Sutcliffe may have been caught earlier.
