8:30pm – Friday, April 2 on ABC1
The streets of Whitechapel are still awash with blood. A murderer is picking off vulnerable women and leaving them brutally butchered.
Tipped-off by ‘Ripperologist’ Edward Buchan (Steve Pemberton), DI Chandler (Rupert Penry-Jones) realises that this modern day killer is copying the infamous Whitechapel murders, down to the very last detail.
Chandler – a novice in the business of murder, but an expert in the politics of policing and three day courses, continues to clash with his team, led by the archetypal cynical, seen-it-all detective DS Ray Miles (Phil Davis).
Suspects lead to dead-ends as the detectives attempt to penetrate the conspiracies and myths that surround the legend of Jack the Ripper.
Frustrated, Chandler pins his hopes on trapping their latest suspect, a solider named Private Leary (Ben Loyd-Holmes), but the operation goes horribly, tragically wrong.
