Premiered: November 14, 2014
Reid and Drake find themselves powerless to resist the awful temptation of a final reckoning with K Division's Jedediah Shine. Meanwhile Jackson and Judge's ever more desperate attempts to profit from that stolen diamond lead them into the teeth of the murderous agents of the De Graal monopoly.
Captain Jackson's reckless and untrustworthy brother arrives in Whitechapel carrying a valuable uncut diamond. Reid and Flight are drawn to the plight of a local craftsman defrauded of his income by a scam. Long Susan finds herself powerless to resist the ever-encroaching influence that Silas Duggan is determined to exert on her life.
Churches and synagogues are being burnt and desecrated in Whitechapel and Reid suspects the same hand behind the various attacks. Meanwhile, the all-too-brief domestic happiness that Sergeant Drake has enjoyed is disrupted by the arrival of a friend from his wife Bella's past.
Investigations into the brutal slaying of a Telegraph Boy lift the lid on a vice racket run from the offices of the GPO. The case leads Reid to the heart of the one of the city's most distinguished financial institutions. Captain Jackson seeks ever more perilous means of ridding himself and Long Susan of the suffocating debt they owe Silas Duggan.
