Audience Reviews for Whitechapel: Season 1

    Disappointed. Expected a meaty uk crime drama. What we got was a great cast but a script a bit thin in depth. I like Rupert Penry Jones, he was great in Spooks however as this senior officer with an annoying OCD issue and a reliance on the annoying crime expert, I felt he was wasted. Basing each episode on a real historic crime didn't work for me. I watched the first few episodes and gave up.

    Watched all 4 seasons probably about 150 times and still not bored. One of the BEST series ever made. Just wish they had done season 5 and finished the story

    Homicide detectives at key scenes not wearing gloves? Jerky out of focus visual 'filler' between scenes? A DI who can't stand the sight of blood? A mature hospital nurse who doesn't answer the phone.....when the ripper is outside her door? Pro critics who give the 2nd rate first episode 90%? Yikes!
