Set in 2008 against the hugely atmospheric background of Whitechapel, London, a modern police force finds itself fighting an old adversary upon discovering a series of bloody, tragic, and impossible crimes that suggest someone is carrying out copycat Jack the Ripper murders. Ambitious DI Joseph Chandler (Rupert Penry-Jones, “The Strain” and “MI-5”) is assigned an open-and-shut case, the killing of a woman in the East End of London. But the investigation quickly runs out of suspects until Edward Buchan (Steve Pemberton, “Inspector Lewis” and “Happy Valley”), a renowned “Ripperologist,” draws the police’s attention to the similarities between the Jack the Ripper killings in 1888 and the modern-day murder. With the help of the cynical DS Miles (Phil Davis, “Mr. Holmes”), the race begins to catch the copycat killer before he strikes again.
