Format: DVD
the story is predictable. a serial killer is copycatting the ripper. solve the original(which folk have been trying for years) and you solve the copycat murders. what prevents this flick from falling into the mundane ripperologist theory is the relationships between the cops.

a fast-tracked DI chandler heads the ripper taskforce. his first sargeant, miles, thinks he's a wet behind the ears kid and outwardly disrespects him. the team follows the DS. in an attempt to gain respect DI Chandler insists his men shower, clean up the squad room and wear a tie. DS miles goes balistic and the clash is in the open.

lack of support from higher ups and his squad drives chandler to seek a ripperologist to try and make sense of the copycat by analysing the ripper murders in the 19th century. needless to say he gets no support for this move, either. this case is a lose-lose politically so he decides to solve the muders because it is his job. the opposng DS miles softens a little, but the DSI cuts him loose.

chandler solves the murders, but the papers crucify him and he is demoted to DI in the final scene. This leaves the series open to continue solving crimes in whitechaple. i liked the characters and the changes in dynamics as the show progessed. this flick is predictable, but it introduced an interesting team of cops. i thinlk i'll try season two and see what happens.

Special fearures: the making of .... featurette. 1 disc in plastic case. region 1 ncts. colour. dolby stereo sound. english subtitles.

I did like it but I prefer "Ripper Street" . It's creepy and mysterious. We will probably get series 2 when it eventually comes out

Format: DVD
The first season of Whitechapel proves the enduring fascination of Jack the Ripper and shows The Met still to be a class-ridden system. It's a great show even if you've never heard of The Ripper, but it'll be better enjoyed if you know the basic facts. Entertaining ways to bone up on Ripper history are the films 'Murder By Decree' (Christopher Plummer), 'Jack the Ripper' (Michael Caine), 'From Hell' (Johnny Depp), or one of the hundreds of books.

A Season Two of Whitechapel has been aired and the DVD set shouldn't be far behind. A good buy!

It took some time before Afterlife, with Andrew Lincoln, was released as a DVD. After years of waiting, I was able to purchase Season 1 this year, likely available now due to Lincoln's success on The Walking Dead.

Rupert Penry-Jones, of MI-5 fame, is the lead in this series, and if season 1 is any indication of the subsequent seasons, this is a series worth watching.

Please release the other seasons on DVD- I promise I'll buy all three!

What a great DVD. This is British television programming in the style which makes it so great. The acting was superb. Absolutely superb. The characters were so real. I hope there will be a series 2.
