The show’s final season picks up mere days after the murder of Bennet Drake and sees his friends Edmund Reid, Homer Jackson and Long Susan drawn together to bring his killer – a new serial killer stalking Whitechapel’s streets ‐ to justice. They are hampered by one fact, they themselves are now hunted by the police for the extra-judicial killing of Long Susan’s father Theodore Swift. Seeking our heroes with a dogged persistence is Assistant Commissioner Augustus Dove. He must do all he can to capture Reid before he is able to reveal the truth to the world: the serial killer is Dove’s brother… Nathaniel.
