Before the series premiere on Wed Oct 26, get an exclusive look into the making of Whitechapel, the newest addition to BBC America's Dramaville - featuring interviews with stars Rupert Penry-Jones (DI Joseph Chandler), Phil Davis (DS Miles) & Steve Pemberton (Edward Buchan); creators & writers Caroline Ip & Ben Court; director S.J. Court (eps 1-3); executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle; and producer Marcus Wilson.

Go inside the six episode crime drama, "the first time... that anyone has attempted to do the Jack the Ripper story in a modern-day format," and find out why Rupert Penry-Jones thinks this "modern police whodunit" is so "interesting" with "a new layer of characters."

As Producer Marcus Wilson says, "History is repeating itself... and it's down to our characters to break the wheel of history."

A copycat killer is terrorizing London - and it'll take everything these officers have to keep history from repeating. In East London, the police force is faced with the brutal and bloody history of their streets -- from Jack the Ripper to the infamous crime twins Ronnie and Reggie Kray. Can these officers "solve the unsolveable and catch the most famous serial killer that ever lived"?

Don't miss Whitechapel, presented by BBC America's Dramaville, the destination for the most groundbreaking drama in British television. Hosted by Emmy & Golden Globe Award nominee Idris Elba (The Wire, The Office, Thor). And coming up next on Dramaville: STATE OF PLAY (Dec 7).
