When a body is discovered floating in the Thames followed by a series of deadly attacks, Chandler and DS Miles (Phil Davis) enlist the help of historical advisor Edward Buchan (Steve Pemberton). When it becomes evident that there is more than one criminal at work, the detectives realize the murders are similar to those committed by the Kray Twins in the 1960s.

It was never terribly formidable even at its initial best, it could be smoothly entertaining in a hectic, frothy way.

Turns out the new breed of bogeymen can be just about as mystifying and terrifying, if not as memorable.

Part of the fun of Whitechapel is delving into the past with the characters.

There's a fine line between a script that makes you work hard to follow what's going on and one where you very quickly stop bothering as you've long since ceased to care. Whitechapel more often than not steps on the wrong side.

Phil Davis is as watchable as ever as the embittered, seen-it-all Sergeant Miles, and I like Steve Pemberton's hammy turn as an amateur sleuth, who once again is three steps ahead of the professionals.
