Much as I enjoyed the first season of Whitechapel, the second seems less focused, less strong in its characters, less... I guess you'd say less necessary. The premise of a note-for-note copycat crime, which drove the first season, seems considerably less plausible in the second, especially when the copycats are copying a crime from living memory. And the story, especially the third and final episode, feels edited together in haste, like a 1990s music video.

A year after failing to catch the Ripper copycat, DI Chandler and his team have settled into routine mediocrity. Chandler's right-hand man and unofficial nanny, DS Miles, has received an award for surviving the Ripper's attack. But on balance, with uninspiring domestic cases that generally get wrapped up overnight, the job has become boring. Even Buchan, their nerdy groupie, has wandered off. Then a gruesome murder with familiar overtones lands on Chandler's desk, and things heat up.

Okay, spoiler: this time the killer is mimicking the Cray Twins. Google them. Suffice to say, their mix of misplaced sexual aggression and downright sadism made them one of 20th Century London's most terrifying organized crime outfits. Buchan spots the similarities, and shows Chandler a video he made in the 1990s about their crimes. Wait a minute, Buchan has a media career? He's a public figure? News to anyone who watched Season One, where he was merely an annoying amateur Ripperologist.

And it only gets weirder from there. Jimmy and Johnny Cray are supposedly Ronnie Cray's sons, through a tortured explanation. Both boys are played by Craig Parkinson, whose resemblance to the Cray Twins is uncanny. However, things happen too fast. The new Cray Twins go from not existing, to controlling the entire East End and having prominent police in their pocket, in days; just days after that, informed commentators begin making apocalyptic predictions. Even John Gotti needed time.

Then, in the conclusion, we go from one point to another so fast, we get whiplash. I'm trying not to give anything germane away, but this story is all over the map. We don't have time to process one plot point before another gets thrown in our faces. I'm more confused than enlightened, especially when the resolution relies upon evidence that literally couldn't come down the pike that fast. Maybe it's because, unlike the Ripper, we know a great deal about the Kray Twins, and the writers needed to pack it all in.

All in all, I found this three-episode series more confusing, less interesting, and noisier than its predecessor. It has too much story, too little character, and is covered in the writers' fingerprints. Though I can't say it was completely awful, and it does have some good moments between the characters, it just doesn't live up to the standards which Season One set. I hoped for better. Maybe Season Three will have what this one lacked.

The relationship between DI Chandler and Sergeant Miles is worth watching even if you are not drawn to the gory, supernatural terrors that Chandler and his squad are continually mired in. This series is not for the squeamish or the superstitious. One of its most endearing qualities is that all of the people on the squad are people with insecurities, phobias, and personality flaws. They are not gorgeous vapid people with air brushed bodies and perfect teeth. They are people you genuinely begin to care about and fervently hope that they solve not only the mystery of deranged killings, but that they also come to terms with their own perceived failings.

A program with an ingenious plot twist that they carry out with excellence. This is a show that deserves to be watched with care and attention. The scripts are filled with subtleties that add icing to the cake, as it were. The cast is so excellent and diversified that the show could go on for years without a viewer becoming bored with them. The plot twist, dealing with historical crimes, is wonderful. I do fear, however, that it will not be possible to continue to write these wonderful scripts without running out of ideas. Good luck to the writers.

Loved it. Very different from the usual detective British detective story. Totally involving from the first scene. Adds unique psychological elements focusing on the detectives rather than on the criminals. Cinematography, lighting, staging are reminiscent of movie set rather than television sets. Employs extremely talented actors not usually seen in major roles. Just enough of the characters' personal issues to keep it interesting, yet not detract from the main plot line. Would love to see this go on for years.

Lots of violent action. Same pattern as season 1, namely a slew of dead ends until a last-minute denouement that seems to come out of nowhere. This time they added a whole slew of unnecessary complications to produce more drama, e.g., DI Chandler is obsessive-compulsive and drinks to medicate. The beginning was interesting, but they seemed to get more and more "creative" as the plot went on and it ends up leaving a phony taste in the mouth.
