Critic Reviews for Whitechapel Season 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

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.

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

Mar 28, 2012 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

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.
