It's set in London's East End, but don't be fooled... for this BC/IFB and Element Pictures production was shot entirely in Dublin. The local police force have barely managed to keep the town of Whitehall from descending into chaos after Jack The Ripper's mysterious murder spree, and the equally mysterious fact that the murders came to a sudden stop. In the midst of this, a woman is found murdered and the manner in which she was killed is very similar to The Ripper's M.O., so it's up to detectives to figure out if this is indeed the return of Jack The Ripper before the entire community panics themselves into a frenzy.
