The compelling crime drama returns for a second series. The job of preventing Whitechapel from descending into hell has never been harder for Inspector Reid and his loyal deputies Detective Bennet Drake and Captain Homer Jackson. As the century enters its final decade, society teeters on the brink of moral collapse, and nowhere are the bloated British Empire's problems felt more keenly than in its dark heart: the East End of London. The memory of Jack the Ripper may have faded but the Whitechapel streets he walked are more dangerous than ever. The men of H-Division are pushed to their very limits, while they are undermined at every turn by the corrupt and amoral force in neighbouring K-Division, led by the formidable Jedediah Shine.
