Whitechapel: Season 1 Photos
Tv Season Info
Accents, creepy historical crimes, that handsome English actor who always plays princes and posh boys, that less handsome English actor who always plays taxi drivers and oiks. What's not to like?
It's a bit tonally inconsistent but this is entertaining television bolstered by strong performances throughout and the dark edge provided by the word Ripper.
It's compelling to watch these disparate men clash and collaborate, even as the suspense level quickly ratchets up with the pursuit of the Ripper copycat.
Whitechapel is a show that relishes these sorts of easily drawn high-and-low dichotomies, and yet flourishes as a diverting and atmospheric crime drama despite them
The mystery is perhaps a too time-honored classic, and there's little subtlety to the shock-cut gruesomeness.
