ITV's The Long Shadow Cast Announcement Toby Jones, David Morrissey, Katherine Kelly, and More 2

In “Episode 5” of The Long Shadow, airing on Thursday April 11 on Sundance Now and AMC+, the police revisit historic attacks in an attempt to identify further victims of the Yorkshire Ripper. Assistant Chief Constable George Oldfield, played by David Morrissey, receives a letter from the killer, adding a new dimension to the investigation.

The episode focuses on the impact of the murders on the community, particularly the women of Yorkshire, and how the police investigated the case during a time of widespread prejudice against the victims, who were mostly sex workers.

The seven-part British series provides a fresh perspective on the infamous serial killer case, shining a light on the victims and their families. It emphasizes the fear and circumstances surrounding the murders and the devastating toll the investigation took on those involved.

“Episode 5” follows the police as they grapple with the realization that they are dealing with a serial killer. The body count rises, and the police struggle to catch the killer, who continues to evade capture and strike again.

The Long Shadow is a gripping seven part true-crime drama that explores the five-year hunt for Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire Ripper, who murdered 13 women between 1975 and 1980. The series highlights the incompetence and misogyny of the police force at the time, as well as the prejudicial attitudes toward the victims.

The cast includes Toby Jones, Katherine Kelly and Daniel Mays.

The episode airs on AMC+ on Thursday, April 11, 2024, as part of the weekly release of episodes on the platform.
