The world has ever been thus mad and in a world of such insanity, where men’s alliances to their country and their values are turned upside down; the only thing to do is keep the faith and believe that all will come right in the end, not something that instantly comes to mind as the B.B.C. adapt the lesser of Agatha Christie’s works in Partners in Crime for the 21st Century audience.

Whitechapel, Series Four, Case 1. Television Review. I.T.V.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * * (Series 4, case 1)

Cast: Rupert Penry Jones, Phil Davis, Steve Pemberton, Claire Rushbrook, Sam Stockman, Ben Bishop, Hannah Walker, Georgina Anderson, Deddie Davies, Jake Curran, Damian Dudkiewicz, Mary Roscoe, Brian Protheroe.

If series three of Whitechapel focused on the gruesome, the first case of series four entered the disturbingly macabre in which the spirit of fear spread by Matthew Hopkins, the early 17th century self-appointed Witch Finder General, found a new playground in which to distribute terror and in the area of Whitechapel there is perhaps no greater place of significance of which fear and terror has been housed.
