Episode Synopses

Season 2

Whitechapel, starring Rupert Penry-Jones, Phil Davis and Steve Pemberton is back with another dark instalment from writers, Ben Court and Caroline Ip.

Atmospheric and brooding, Whitechapel 2 draws on an iconic cult crime born out of London's East End.

After Jack the Ripper comes the gangster brutality of the Krays, and in Whitechapel 2 the paranoia of this era and the faded glamour of the former East End overlords characterise the drama.

It is as sharp, intense and as visually distinctive as Whitechapel 1 with the gangster culture the Krays never far away. Produced by Carnival Films, Whitechapel 2 broadcasts across three one-hour episodes.

The principal cast are joined by Peter Serafinowicz, who plays DCI Cazenove and Craig Parkinson, who plays twins, Jimmy and Johnny Kray.

Directed by David Evans and produced by Grainne Marmion, Whitechapel 2 was filmed at various locations around London including Whitechapel, Bethnal Green and the East End.

Penry-Jones, Davis and Pemberton return to their characters of Chandler, Miles and Buchan with pathos and black humour remaining key to the drama.

Copycat murders, maiming and torture trigger intense emotions and DI Chandler will be given an even greater run for his money than the first time round.

This time it is personal.
