Storyline

Set in 2008 and against the hugely atmospheric background of Whitechapel, London, a modern police force are fighting an old adversary. A series of bloody, tragic and impossible crimes would suggest someone is carrying out copycat Jack the Ripper murders. The murders are investigated by our three unlikely heroes: Chandler, a fast-tracked, media savvy DI on his first big murder case; Miles, nearing retirement, a front-line, hard-bitten DS, and Buchan, the eccentrically brilliant Jack the Ripper tour guide.

Where's the Police Work?
8 June 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this series but find it hard to put my finger on why. The filming, the locations, the atmosphere, the music, the acting and direction. They are all excellent. That must be why.

But when thinking about it I realise there's virtually no story, no police work, no plot development. So if you are a fan of them you'd be disappointed perhaps.

We just wait for the new Jack to do his thing without ever getting closer to finding him.

We go down a couple of wrong directions thanks to the prompting of DS Miles. And that's all there is for 'police work'.

It's all a frustrating no progress until the last reel when suddenly we go directly to the killer... well, as directly as circumstances permit.

The touted 'teamwork' of the three simply doesn't exist. One of the three the other two have locked up for a while. Another of the three keeps us going down blind alleys. And the third does nothing until suddenly pulling the rabbit out of the hat like a magician.

That's the kind of movie it is.
