Blog Spotlight: ITV's "Whitechapel" - saved by Jack the Ripper

So Rupert Penry-Jones waves goodbye to the world of Spooks and swaps it for the staple of British television drama: the detective show.

His first assignment, tonight on ITV1, was Whitechapel. A woman is found butchered in the East End of London, her throat cut, her intestines on display. Sound familiar? It should do. It happened before. In 1888 to be precise, executed, so to speak, by the UK's first and most celebrated serial killer: Jack the Ripper.

ITV's body is found on the 120th anniversary of what was assumed to be the first Ripper murder. Called to the scene is Inspector Joseph Chandlor, a fast-tracked DI, a graduate trainee with friends in high places. He arrives at the scene, fresh from what looked suspiciously like a St James's St gentlemen's club, wearing a dinner suit and bow tie. He bromptly blanches at the first sight ...

Welcome to the Whitechapel guide at TV.com.

DI Joseph Chandler, a police officer on the fast track, is assigned to Whitechapel CID. In his first 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 trailed a serial killer who appeared to be targeting people who had crossed the Kray twins, gangsters who dominated the East End in the 1950s and 1960s. In subsequent investigations, the detectives were confronted with several bizarre murders, each of which emulated horrors from the distant past.

Whitechapel was a Carnival films production for ITV.
