Whitechapel star Rupert Penry Jones talks crime drama return in series four
October 1, 2013
It was meant to be a one-off crime drama, but Whitechapel captured the audiences’ attention so brilliantly the show is back with its fourth series.
Returning in his role as Detective Inspector Joseph Chandler is Rupert Penry Jones, who today joined This Morning to talk about the runaway success of the thrilling series, and what twists and turns viewers can expect from the latest outing.
“When it started it was not meant to be a series, just a one-off standalone three-part drama," Rupert explained.
“They called it Whitechapel, which made it very difficult to make it into a serial killer show with serial killings happening in Whitechapel every week.
“But they’ve come up with a great idea this year, there’s something else going on, a sort of supernatural vibe. Is it the devil, what’s happening? There’s someone whispering in people’s ears. They’ve opened the world up now and they can have as many serial killings as they like.”
