A SECOND series of three-part ITV drama Whitechapel has been announced.

The second run will see Rupert Penry-Jones, Phil Davis and Steve Pemberton return as their original characters to tackle a copycat case of Kray twins-style gangster brutality.

The original series saw the trio solve the case of a modern-day Jack the Ripper.

ITV's Laura Mackie said: "Whitechapel II will be as audacious and as compelling as the first series, strengthened by further character development and very real personal jeopardy."

Pre-production on the new episodes is due to begin this autumn.
