Explosive crime drama

The crime drama which has explored the criminal underworld of London's East End returns in the high summer of 1897, as Queen Victoria celebrates her Diamond Jubiliee. This fourth series once again reunites our heroes - Reid could never stay away from Whitechapel for long - and he is soon reunited with Drake and Jackson, once more policing the meanest streets imaginable.

This explosive crime drama stars BAFTA-award winning Matthew Macfadyen, Game of Thrones star Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg, Shameless star David Threlfall and Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis who joins the cast for series 4.
