The fact that the protagonist of Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem is a woman who becomes a murderess due to her horrendous family upbringing gives an unprecedented domestic turn to Ackroyd’s depiction of Victorian London, placing the dysfunctional family at its centre. This article argues that the process of sideshadowing brought about by Ackroyd’s representation of the making of a Victorian serial killer, with its pattern of cyclical repetition and its carnivalesque excessiveness, casts new light not only on our own traumatic age but also, just as importantly, on the darkest and most forcefully repressed aspects of the Victorian family. More concretely, Abraham and Torok’s theory of the phantom is employed to show how Ackroyd unveils the mechanisms of sublimation and displacement used in mid-Victorian sensation novels and penny dreadfuls to hide the objectifying, often abusive dysfunctionality of nuclear families that threatened the perpetuation of the comforting though illusionary family romance.
