It can only be a good thing that television is prepared at times to look back through the innumerable amount of books and novels from before the second world war, the wealth of words wrapped up in long forgotten dust sheets and only admired by students of English literature. At times, it is good that television does this, for it reminds the multitude that there is such a thing as a story without sensationalism and the need for lust to be shown at every possible moment.

To love history, to love the chronicles of English Literature that delve further back than even that of the great works of art beloved by Geoffrey Chaucer or the stunning Beowulf, one must then surely admire just how the kingdom of England was forged in the fire of heat and war, to the point where even a committed pacifist could take up a sword to defend a hillside or see the Somerset Levels not as a housing estate but as a naturally occurring set of defences.

The Peace of Edmund Reid is perhaps one that the people of Whitechapel might never have thought might be attained, in real 19th Century London or indeed in the fictional portrayal, made seamless and near perfect by Matthew Macfadyen, yet peace after so much devastation is not so much an impossible ask, it only requires all the circles of Hell to finally close and be seen to banished.

Violence in Whitechapel is not a new phenomenon, nor is the grisly shadow one that has taken residence between the evil carried out by Jack the Ripper and the emergence of the Kray Twins, it is one that that has brewed for centuries and arguably makes the area outside of the walls of the City of London one of the most dynamic and interesting in the whole of the U.K.

Inspector Reid is missing and after the events in recent Whitechapel history it’s not a bad thing that his life is to be missing from the annals of the area’s police investigations, for who would trust a murderer, even one provoked, to carry out the biggest job in the London?
