Excellent First Season of "Whitechapel" from BBC America, which is Intelligent, Intriguing, and Suspenseful, with Superb Acting
on April 8, 2017
This first season of "Whitechapel" commences a decidedly dark and stylish British detective drama from BBC America, depicting modern-day Jack-the-Ripper copycat murders. As is the case with most BBC America programming, "Whitechapel" is intelligent, intriguing, and suspenseful. The writing, the sets, and the acting are all superb. In addition, the concomitant interpersonal drama between the inexperienced command detective, and his hardened veteran investigators, makes for an interesting dynamic for the viewers of this excellent series. "Whitechapel, Season 1" is an outstanding BBC America detective procedural, and it merits a five-star rating, along with a strong recommendation.
