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.

Awesome series!
30 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

I have watched the entire series, all 4 at least three times... This show really started out well, with a copycat Jack The Ripper storyline... Series 2 and 3 were also really good. This series really exemplifies what a gritty, thought provoking UK series is... it exemplifies what a series should be even in the States...

The only issue I have is that series 4 goes more paranormal than the previous 3 series... I believe that is what killed the show. I think if the writers stayed the course with investigating murders, and linking them to historical crimes... the show would still be on.

I will sadly miss seeing new episodes, and will have to watch only the 4 series that are available...

Great show!
