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. Written by anonymous

Trivia

During Season 1, real offal was used for the 'gore' on the murdered prostitutes and would develop quite a stench. In Season 2 onwards, prosthetics and make up were used instead. See more »

Goofs

The Met don't use interview rooms with two way mirrors. That's an Americanism. See more »

Did not want it to end!

I loved the characters and the story lines, and especially the history they brought into the series. It was a sad day for me when this series ended!
