Smart, Suspenseful BBC Mystery Whitechapel: The Ripper Returns On DVD


A killer is replicating, in chilling detail, a famous crime spree in Whitechapel: The Ripper Returns (BBC), and if you missed this on BBC America here's your chance to watch this terrific new TV series on DVD. Joseph Chandler (Rupert Penry-Jones) is Detective Inspector Joseph Chandler, on the fast track for advancement, who is assigned to head the murder inquiry. The team immediately resents him and ignores his commands, even when he deduces the series of deaths are modeled after the famed Jack the Ripper murders. Then it becomes a race against time to thwart this wily adversary. Phil Davis is particularly good as the hard ass-detective who seems to block Chandler at every corner in the beginning. Smart and suspenseful.
