Friday 2nd March 2012
Join DI Joseph Chandler and his crime-fighting unit as they protect the streets of London's Whitechapel, an area drenched in dark history and sinister goings-on, as Whitechapel: Series 3 is released on DVD with never-before-seen bonus features from 12th March 2012, courtesy of Universal Playback.
The gripping third series of the phenomenally successful show unearths a Whitechapel full of Gothic shadows, cobblestones and ancient hostelries as the team solve more grisly and chilling crimes. Ed Buchan (Steve Pemberton, The League of Gentlemen, Benidorm) join DI Chandler (Rupert Penry-Jones, Silk, Spooks) and DS Miles (Philip Davis, Collision, Silk) to solve fatal and gruesomely sadistic crimes, including the Thames Torso Murders, The Zodiac Killer and The Ratcliffe Highway Murders.
Convinced that crimes of the past hold the vital key to solving dreadful crimes of the present, Chandler digs deep into the police archive - a vast but chaotic collection of files and papers beneath the incident room - to help the officers put brutal killers behind bars. Taking the audience through 300 years of thrilling history, Whitechapel Series 3 explores the East End, where fear is rife in the Huguenot weaving houses of Wilkes Street and the dark corners and rooftops around Brick Lane.
