Thursday 12 March 9:00pm on C4

It’s 1980 and the ‘Ripper’ has tyrannised Yorkshire for six long years. Senior Manchester detective Peter Hunter (Paddy Considine) is brought in by the Home Office to conduct a secret review of the Ripper investigation to date. Hunter’s been involved with West Yorkshire before; he failed to complete an investigation into a shooting involving Yorkshire coppers back in 1974. This time Hunter’s determined not to leave without getting results. Oscar-winning director James Marsh directs Paddy Considine, Jim Carter, Warren Clarke, David Morrissey, Peter Mullan, Maxine Peake and Tony Pitts.
