Plot: Police station in Whitechappel, 1889, is a sort of a Fort Apache the Bronx of the Victorian London. Detective Inspector Edmund Reid tries to uphold the order, even if he questions the moral implications of obeying unjust laws. His American sidekick and his frosty-queen, bordello-running wife, add a spicy twist to the storyline.
Pros: Strong, complicated characters, excellent writing, tight plot. No slack in this one. Gets better, darker and more intricate with each season.
Cons: Tear-jerker at times.
