Storyline

With a serial killer claiming victim 13 and rumors of corruption in their force, the West Yorkshire cops are told to cooperate with a team from outside - Peter Hunter and two hand-picked associates. Hunter gets little help but plunges ahead, discovering that one of the 13 victims may have a different killer. This part of the investigation leads to late-night calls, another murder, and bureaucratic moves to push Hunter aside: he may be getting close, not to the serial killer but to bad apples in the force. Christmas approaches. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The wolves will be a chase.
29 March 2009 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Please see my review for the first part of this amazing trilogy to establish just how jaw-droppingly good I think the whole thing was.

This time around, we join Peter Hunter (played by the consistently brilliant Paddy Considine) as he is asked to head a covert investigation into the Yorkshire Police Force and their methods of investigating the Yorkshire Ripper case. The people are scared and looking for others to blame while the police, again busy with their own interests and corruption, are coming up empty-handed. This is almost a stand-alone effort, having less connection with the first part than the finale will have, but it keeps some story strands running and the big picture is really only seen by those who watch the whole thing. Which I implore everyone to do.

We have high production values once again and another cast to die for. Considine is so good that it's almost impossible to believe he would come on board for what is, essentially, a TV production but fair play to the guy for spotting dynamite material when he sees it. Many others have already appeared in the "1974" instalment and the new faces (such as Maxine Peake, Lesley Sharp and Joseph Mawle) all step right up to the mark and join the others in performing out of their damn skins.

It's more discomfort for the viewer due to the material and graphic detail (described more than actually shown) and also ties in with the real, notorious hunt for "The Yorkshire Ripper" in a way that perfectly, and unnervingly, blends fact with fiction. Not quite as impactful as the first episode/movie, this nevertheless delivers quality on every single level and keeps the 10/10 standard that the previous production started off with.

See this if you like: Zodiac, L.A. Confidential, Red Riding "1974".
