  • Summary: Rupert Penry-Jones stars as DI Joseph Chandler, a detective hunting a modern-day serial killer.

    In his frst big murder investigation, the man Chandler was after was no ordinary killer; he was copying the murders committed by Jack the Ripper in the 1880s. With the help of self-proclaimed
    Ripperologist Edward Buchan and DS Ray Miles, Chandler sought to catch the killer before he emulated Jack's final kill, never to be seen again.

    In the second story, the team is on the trail of a serial killer who appears to be targeting people who had crossed the Kray twins, gangsters who dominated the East End in the 1950s and 1960s.

    The show has not disappointed and highlights the characters flaws perfectly whilst entwining the mysteries of the case in question. The show is leaning towards the blurred line of realism and the supernatural, adding another intriguing layer of thoughtful plotting, and perhaps misdirection. Hopefully the show will be renewed for another season however shows, like this, tend not to be favorites with the channels that air them. Fingers crossed. Expand
