Viewers who saw the first two installments of Whitechapel will appreciate that there is a significant change in format this time round. Whereas the first two series were three part stories based on Jack the Ripper and The Kray Twins respectively, this time round we have three two part stories. Additionally these investigations are based much more loosely on historical crimes than the first two series. I imagine this is because the Ripper and the Krays are the only two major criminal activities in the Whitechapel area which most viewers will be familiar with.

It is easy to see why this change has come about. Whitechapel was probably intended as a one off, but following its resounding success there was a lot of pressure to come up with a follow up. What we got was a farfetched tale involving clones of the Krays which stretched credibility to extremes. The powers that be clearly appreciated that this time the format had to move on. The result actually works rather well. The historical crimes are still real - you can google the Ratcliff Highway Murders , the Thames Torso Murders or the various masked murderer crimes mentioned on the show, and get the details. The fact that the crimes being investigated are more loosely based on these events makes for a much more realistic story line as opposed to the straight copycat replication of the earlier series.

I thought that the three stories each worked although my personal favorite was the last of the three which was dark and shocking with a substantial sting in the tail. It certainly makes for good if not compulsive TV viewing. One thing I do not think is necessary though is for parts of the filming to be in the semi dark.

Having been a fan of the series I was pleased to see its return and I think overall its still got to be one of the best police detective dramas there is.The acting is on top form as usual with all the main characters having there own personal demons to cope with which I think gives the characters that slight edge on other police detective programs and also I must say there is still no holding back on the gruesome scenes. All the stories were gripping with the usual twists and turns and I must say overall I really did enjoy watching this series and I hope that there will be more in the future.Highly recommended.

This is one of my favorite progammes on the box. The stories are not suitable for nervous people. Good acting and good scripts.

I already own Whitechapel series 1 & 2. I loved series 1 following a modern Jack the Ripper, thought series 2 was pretty decent with the Krays and think series 3 is good but creepy with this (unnamed) serial killer. In my opinion series 3 better than 2 but not as good as 1. The story follows a murderer that seems unconnected with his victims. They are very gruesome crimes which the the team headed by DCI Chandler tris to solve with the guidance of historical crimes. There is a new character in the form of an over efficient female DCI from a neighboring borough who consults on the case. One of the weirdest things about this series is the little odd flashbacks throughout the episodes. Right until the end you cannot work out what they actually are. I found them seriously annoying and distracting to the story line. I hope there will be a series 4 which I will buy straight away!

Bring together a team of excellent actors & actresses, mix in superb script writing and the dramatic backdrop of a part of London associated with so much history and you have a recipe for success. In this third series, we see the characters, some complex and disturbed, develop. The story lines are exceptional. I thoroughly recommend these series, but do watch in sequence to the heart-wrenching end!
