Episode six:
 
Following Chandler and Miles’ discovery of a man cooking an unsavory meal and the photographic evidence of a group seemingly hunting in Whitechapel’s sewers, the team investigate a possible cannibalistic club of killers with a repulsive diet of human flesh.
 
Personal dramas in the Incident Room reach boiling point when Kent and Mansell butt heads. Miles’ research into the supernatural goings on in the police station point him in one particular direction, are the footsteps down the corridors, silty water and mouldy walls all the work of a vandal?
 
With a young girl missing and no lead on where to find her, Miles forces Chandler to see a psychic, but whilst she helps very little toward the case she instead reveals a message from Chandler’s past, a message he doesn’t want to hear.
 
Series overview:
 
Chandler, Miles and the team investigate a series of bizarre and macabre murders that set them on edge. A darkness pervades their cases; something unsettling, something that lurks in the shadows that makes you not want to turn out the lights. Buchan is challenged to use his extraordinary resource of archive material to find historical precedents. Can he give the team the edge over a series of ruthless and cunning adversaries? 
 
This series touches on historical precedents such as witchcraft, cold war espionage, ghoulish Victorian surgeons, cryptozoology and hidden horrors in the East End’s underground tunnels. The history of Whitechapel as a centre of evil comes to the fore. The world remains a shadowy, gothic place, infused with history, dripping with the blood of the past. In Whitechapel, history isn’t dead, it’s deadly.
