This is the first season (with 3-episodes) of the BBC series that focuses on murders that mirror historical crimes.
Detective Inspector Joseph Chandler (Rupert Penry-Jones) is fast-tracked to move quickly into the upper echelons of the police department. To do this, he must first prove himself as a DI in charge of a supposedly open-and-shut murder case. He quickly discovers, however, that the murderer is copying the brutal Jack the Ripper killings from the 1880's.
The murders are a bit gruesome, but the characters, tension, and atmosphere make up for any shortcomings. If you are a Sherlock Holmes fan or if you like historical mysteries, then you will probably enjoy this. Unfortunately, our library only carries this first season. Otherwise I'd definitely watch the remaining two.
