New series of Whitechapel to be darkest yet

WhitechapelThe producer of ITV’s gritty detective drama Whitechapel has promised the third series will be the darkest yet.

Sally Woodward Gentle, the executive producer, has promised the third season will take the characters to even darker places. “We now have the chance to take Chandler, Miles and Buchan to darker places still. If you thought the Ripper and the Krays were scary – just wait.” She is quoted in The Sun as saying. ITV renewed Whitechapel for a third series last year but this time the format of the detective drama will be different – with six one hour episodes instead of three. The first season dealt with a Jack the Ripper copycat killer while the second had a Kray’s brothers theme. The series stars Rupert Penry-Jones, Phil Davis, Steve Pemberton and Claire Rushbrook.
