Nice interview in GQ with Bill Nighy about playing Inspector John Kildare in the Limehouse Golem:
“I like the fact that, in the film, the suspects are all famous real people. Like, for instance, Karl Marx. You find yourself thinking, “Well, was Karl Marx in London?” Yeah, Karl Marx was in London. “Was he really a suspect for the Ratcliff Highway… ?” No, he wasn’t. Obviously.
It was a very good script and I’ve waited a long time to be a detective, so I was very happy.”
