I must admit that when I heard the basics of the plotline for this I wan't going to watch it, but I am glad I did. Don't put this down without watching it because you will miss something really good.

After their last case where they were following a Jack the Ripper copycat killer the team now find themselves up against the Krays. Have the Krays come back to life, or is there something more than just a copycat killer on the loose? Soon the team are up against it, who can you trust? Who is pulling whose strings? Who is going to be the next to die?

Are the Krays really back again, or is there something much more sinister going on? If you recently saw this on tv I don't have to explain to you what happens, and if you didn't then I don't want to spoil your viewing pleasure. If you like your crime dramas a bit more gritty and a little bit different as well as being well acted, then this should be right up your street. Admittedly at the beginning the plot may seem a bit ludicrous, but watch it to the end and see who is really pulling the strings of everyone.

Considering this programme was just a short tv series a lot of effort and thought has gone into it. I found it pretty fast paced and I enjoyed all of it. There are lots of twists and turns, you think you've finally worked it out, but then you realise that you haven't. I shall be watching this again :)

Whitechapel has a great storyline, great acting, a great setting and generally is just a great drama! Rupert Penry-Jones, Steve Pumberton and Phil Davies are great acting talents in this programme, and supply a really good tone to the programme with their spot-on performances. All of their charecters are played correctly to the upmost pin-point which therefore makes the programme a real good joy.

The storyline in this series is following 2 men who are copying the skills and crimes commited by the Kray twins. However soon the Whitechapel police department realise the case may go a lot deeper than just a simple copycat. After the success of the first series, investigating a Jack the Ripper copycat, this drama had a lot to live up to - and the excellent back storyline and the way it was written help it complete this aim. This drama is very well written and really a joy to watch.

The case itself is very intriguing, full of twists and turns you it makes you feel very connected to the storlyine and the charecters. Therefore you feel like you really are following these charecters as their try and solve this case - and you feel the problems they encounter during the process - you feel like you are starting to experience the actions and emotions of these charecters as their try to find and stop the killers. A really brilliant TV programme and one I would definatly reccomend buying.

Whitechapel Series 2 was definitely one to look forward to. As with the first Whitechapel the casting was excellent and the acting very good. To be unlucky enough to have to deal with two gruesome copycat serial killings, first in series one with the Ripper and in series 2 with the Krays, was however hard to swallow. Our Ripper expert from series one seemed equally au fait with the Kray story but at least this time the murderers were caught. Sadly, however, not before most of the intended victims were already dead. If there is to be a series three I sincerely hope the copycat theme is laid to rest. Despite this I can still recommend watching the series. The historical research was hard to fault and the production and direction were also of a high standard.

I have to admit that, after seeing the first series, I thought 'Whitechapel' could only be a one-off, as I couldn't see how they would be able to do any more with this. In hindsight, moving to the Krays was an obvious next step, but for me this series did not have the appeal of the first and ultimately the whole storyline was contrived at all levels and boringly predictable (especially around the police corruption). Overall it was all rather unbelievable with an ending that was a damp squib to say the least. My personal feeling is that the Krays is too recent an event to work in this type of programme and I would have liked to see an exploration of a much less well known incident in Whitechapel's rich but murky past (TV is meant to educate as well as entertain, after all).

Don't get me wrong, it was entertaining and diverting enough, but my credibility switch had to be turned off to a much greater degree than for the 'Jack the Ripper' case. Personally I hope they don't make any more of this programme as it can only be a case of the law of diminishing returns being proved correct to my mind.

Again maybe it's because I'm not British, but series 2 was just not as riveting as series 1.

The characters of the police crew are not given as much development. For some reason they give the chief/Guv a case of OCD. It doesn't seem to fit.

Most of this series involves the mythology of the real Kray brothers, and the effects it has left behind on the East End and on the police, who either worked the case or knew people who did. If you did not grow up knowing who the Kray brothers are, then it's just a lot of nattering on about a couple of criminals. I don't know that this series will have the same impact on people outside Britain for that reason.

For those who are well versed in the iconography of the Kray crimes, this will probably be a lot more interesting.
