Trivia

Ms. Spencer mentions having previously reported Mary's disappearance at Leman St. police station, where no one was interested. Leman Street was the police station featured in "Ripper Street", a similarly-themed show on the BBC. It was also the headquarters of H Division which investigated the real Jack the Ripper murders.

User Reviews

 
Mr. Whicher episodes are brilliant

This is actually a review of all four of the Mr. Whicher episodes that I've viewed: The Murder at Road Hill House, the Murder in Angel Lane, Beyond the Pale, and Ties that Bind. I disagree with other comments that the four don't come together. The psychological development of the Whicher character is completely plausible from a psychological perspective (I'm a psychotherapist). The shifting loyalties of the political characters are also completely plausible, in my personal experience with local politicians. I love the emotional depth, courage, humility, and values that the author and Paddy Considine bring to the Whicher role. I hope that there are more episodes.
