Here is a cool series in today time in whitechapel. There is the one before that I reviewed call the ripper street that takes places in Whitechapel in the 1800’s. The second season has more episode the first one has only 3 episodes. So you have a dude who thinks he can emulate Jack the ripper and getting away with it. Chandler won’t have it id he can help it. at first he wants his men to look professional and wear ties and clean the place upon the top of it he wants them to take a shower because it smell in her. He obsessed with cleanness and eating healthy. Also it is a big shoes to fill to do a series in the modern world about Jack the Ripper a number of books has been written about it. There is speculation who is The Ripper also. Whitechapel is a fascinating modern interpretation. It could be a fresh new way to look at it. The story set ups characters conflict. There are some great performances in this one. I will say no more. this is a must see.
