“So all you’ve got to do now is solve the unsolvable and catch the most famous serial killer that ever lived.” --D.S. MilesThe streets of London’s East End are awash with blood. A murderer stalks the night, picking off vulnerable women and leaving them brutally butchered. But this is not the 19th Century; this is not Jack the Ripper – this is a copycat killer and once again the police remain clueless… For fast-tracked, media savvy DI Chandler it’s his first big murder case; for front-line, hard-bitten DS Miles, he’s now saddled with a boss who would rather talk about Emotional Intelligence than gut feeling. Neither of them have a clue, until renowned ‘Ripperologist’ Edward Buchan draws their attention to the similarities between the Jack the Ripper killings in 1888 and the modern-day murder. The race is on to succeed where police officers failed over 100 years before – to catch the copycat killer before he strikes again.

In order to put this idea across, the story revolves around the 'ultimate' fan of Jack copying his infamous murders, 120 years on. Penry-Jones stars as the detective put in charge of the case and he truly puts in a fantastic performance. It is he who first accepts that history is repeating itself - but of course, this realisation then brings him to the knowledge that it is he who is now responsible for trying to solve the unsolveable.
I won't give any more away than that. All I will say is that this drama succeeds on many levels. Ripperologists should find much to like but even just fans of drama and crime should take something from it. The cast are all very good, making it not just about Jack and the murders but also about the people on the police force.
Another great drama from ITV - highly recommended.
It is with enormous joy then that I can thoroughly recommend 'Whitechapel' to you. Be you a seasoned Ripperologist, a beginner or someone with a casual interest in Jack The Ripper (or in fact just great drama) you WILL enjoy this. The standard of acting throughout is exceptional. Phil Davies is the epitomy of the abrasive, seasoned and experienced copper fed up with 'fast tracked' DI's taking command of 'his boys'. Rupert Penry-Jones is equally impressive as the 'never got his hands dirty before' out of his depth DI that eventually 'gets the taste' for the job he at first saw as a way of 'ticking a career box'. Best of all however is Steve Pemberton's Ripperologist character. Pemberton is simply magical as the incredibly knowledgeable, 'Buchann' whose apparent reveling in, and public performance of (via his 'Ripper Walks') the gory details of the case make him both creepy and unnerving.
For hardcore Ripperologists, the character names and suspect descriptions will ring many bells and help to truly bring the past to life.Read more ›
It is present day Whitechapel and it would seem that the police have a Jack the Ripper copycat killer on their hands. But if that wasn't bad enough the detectives who have to deal with the crimes have a fast-track university graduate to lead them. In todays modern world it should be relatively easy to catch the psychopath you would think, but alas no, as history starts to repeat itself. The forensic reports start to read exactly the same as from the original cases and the desriptions of the killer start to seem the same as back then, also you have the nutters who claim that they did it coming out of the woodwork, as they did back then. It seems that the ghost of Jack is back repeating his crimes as the police bash their heads against the wall following one misleading clue and suspect after another. Is it a copycat killer or has the real Jack returned? And can the police catch him? I'm not going to spoil it if you haven't already seen it, but it is well worth watching.
The production team have really done their research for this, the acting is brilliant and the whole thing gels together beautifully. Rupert Penry-Jones as the fast-track officer is convincing as all the characters are. Phil Davies is brilliant as the hardened copper who starts off undermining the leader of the group but comes to liking, respecting and helping the poor bloke. Steve Pemberton as the Ripperologist who tries to help the police plays his strongest and most powerful role that I have seen him in. If you loved Messiah you will definitely love this, and there isn't a criminal psychologist to get in the way anywhere.

Good TV thriller. Well written and acted. Recommended for fans of Ripper lore.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
Actually very good. Gritty and macabre, with a "hero" you don't like all that much. Enjoyed it while it lasted on Netflix, and bought it when it dissappered. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
