Whitechapel Series 4 Case 3

Whitechapel (2)

Part one : The team is fearful when Buchan is kidnapped. With Miles taunted by an unknown force in the station, Riley’s infected hand worsening, and Mansell teetering on the edge of self-destruction, Chandler takes the lead in an investigation into the discovery of a runner’s disembowelled body in the sewers. The incident has led some to suspect the return of the Black Swine – a mythical sow that was said to have spawned a litter of mutated feral creatures beneath Victorian London – and others to believe that a subterranean gang of cannibals is running wild.

Part two : The hunt is on to find a gang of suspected cannibalistic killers lurking in the sewers before a missing girl becomes the next victim. The station is under attack and the forces of evil are moving against the team on all sides, and as the case takes a dangerously personal twist for Chandler, he must resort to desperate measures.

Crime thriller, starring Rupert Penry-Jones, Phil Davis and Steve Pemberton.

Well, this is the most gruesome case of this series and I’m not sure I’ll watch the fifth series if there is one ! Yuck !

Whitechapel Series 4 Case 2

Whitechapel

Part one : Miles and Chandler’s latest case takes them deep into the world of modern art after the discovery of a flayed human face at Whitechapel Gallery. Interpreting some Russian prison tattoos suggests a link to organised crime, but what is the significance of the mysterious footsteps heard in empty corridors at the police station? As the investigation progresses, the killer strikes again, leaving a coded message, and Buchan’s desperate search for answers leads him on a dangerous path.

Part two : As the killer runs rings around the team, striking quickly and leaving coded messages at the crime scenes, Chandler and Miles start to question the motives behind the gruesome deeds. The investigation is then further hampered when a new eyewitness claims the murderer looks like an old lady, and as the body count rises, Buchan works hard to find a precedent – but his research looks set to put him in danger.

Crime thriller, starring Rupert Penry-Jones, Phil Davis and Steve Pemberton.

I have to admit that sometimes I had to look away from the screen. It’s a comfort to hear Rupert Penry-Jones in an interview saying that he’s frightened as well as me by those stories ( especially the first case ).

Part two – A connection to a 16th-century murder seems to confirm someone is killing witches in Whitechapel. Chandler is on the case, but is there a malign influence at work within the team? The police station itself appears to pulsate with unexplained phenomena and even the usually hard-bitten Miles starts to ask questions.
