BBC's Whitechapel debuts Sunday night at 9 pm on LA's public TV KCET and streaming online at kcet.org



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.

Cinematic and stylish, with a distinctive gothic edge and gallows wit, WHITECHAPEL stands out from most police procedural dramas and was nominated in five categories at the Monte Carlo Television Festival in 2012.
