    Summary of Whitechapel Seasons 1-3 DVD Box Set

    Whitechapel is a British television drama series produced by Carnival Films, in which detectives in London's Whitechapel district deal with murders which replicate historical crimes. The first series was first broadcast in the UK on 2 February 2009 and depicted the search for a modern copycat killer replicating the murders of Jack the Ripper.

    A second series was commissioned by ITV in September 2009 with the focus on the Kray twins. The first episode of this second series was broadcast on 11 October 2010.

    A third series was commissioned by ITV in March 2011, which was extended to six episodes as three two-part stories.

    The first and second series were cablecast in the United States on six consecutive Wednesday evenings beginning 26 October 2011 on the BBC America cable network. The third began airing in the U.S. on Wednesday evening 28 March 2012, also on BBC America.

    Whitechapel debuted on 2 February 2009 at 9pm with 8.13 million viewers on the overnight ratings. A review in the Leicester Mercury said that it was "Life on Mars, without the time-travel" adding "what Whitechapel lacked in originality, it more than made up for with atmosphere and enthusiasm."

    After Episode 2 aired on 9 February, Andrew Billen in The Times said that he had warmed to it more and more, adding, "slowly, the show is making Ripperologists of us all, as Jack's 'canonical' murders are separated from the ones he actually committed. It is all in the worst possible taste and bloody good fun."

    However, The Daily Telegraph was less impressed, writing "The premise was feeble, the script imbecilic, the acting on autopilot, the direction lacking in any glimmer of tension."
