When a sergeant from the neighbouring police district, Limehouse, is hurled from a tenement window onto the iron railings below, Det Insp Reid finds himself thrown into the murky trade of legal opium in Chinatown which is being converted in Whitechapel into a new opiate, heroin, with seemingly the help of the amoral Detective Inspector Jedediah Shine (Joseph Mawle) head of K Division, Limehouse, who had previously spent 10 years with the Hong Kong police. Reid, taunted by Shine as "pure as the driven", finds himself accused of killing the sergeant at the Whitechapel hospital where the only witness might be Joseph Merrick (Joseph Drake), the Elephant Man.
