Whitechapel Season 3
The third season of Whitechapel and what I thought was the final season until a trailer for season 4 popped up, is broken down into 6 – two part episodes.
For the first episode, how is someone murdered in a locked room? With tinges of Edgar Allan Poe, this is quite an eerie storyline.
Second, body parts are showing up in the city and washing up on shore. Do we actually have a Murder Castle in the style of H. H. Holmes or is this a repeat of the Torso Murders?
For the finale, a dangerous patient and former Whitechapel resident escapes from a psychiatric unit around the same time that a babysitter is murdered. Is all the attention focused on the wrong suspect?
Ed, crime historian and Ripperologist joins the team, much to the distress of just about everyone, especially Miles. Tensions are still running high as Chandler and Miles argue over just about everything. Even Kent is arguing with the boss and feels the investigation is taking a wrong turn.
Inspired by a series of real life serial murders, this set is quite bit darker than the original two. Relationships are falling apart and the team is barely able to function together. Fights break out left and right and the horrors of the murder are taking their toll. Tensions are running high for this one.
Again, lots of good stories and acting. The focus is on the police and how they deal with the crimes and conduct their investigations. And for this set, they’re coming unglued. It all seems to be coming apart. Even if they do solve a cast, it’s up in the air as to whether or not they can work together. Team members have been bought off, others have been killed off. They’re all suspicious of each other and keep each other at a distance.
A really interesting season that leaves you guessing as to whether or not they’re coming back. And if they do, who’s had enough of this lifestyle…
