“Gripping and grisly”--The Sun
“A dark, bloody and twisted series, unlike anything else on british tv”--Daily Mail
“Beautifully performed, and beautiful to look at – stylish, and stylized”--The Guardian
Haunted by the failure to catch Londonʼs most evil killer, Jack the Ripper, Inspector Edmund Reid (Matthew Macfadyen) now heads up the notorious H Division – the toughest police district in the
East End. Charged with keeping order in the blood-stained streets of Whitechapel, Reid and his men fi nd themselves fi ghting to uphold justice and the rule of law; but always in the background
lurks the fear of the Ripper – is he back for another reign of terror.
The shadow of the Ripper is still felt in the neighbourhood by the vigilantes, the sensation-seeking newspaper hacks and the men who hunted – and failed to find – the notorious murderer. It seems that even though the notorious killer has disappeared, there are plenty more willing to stain the streets of Whitechapel with their victims’ blood...
BONUS FEATURE: WALKING WHITECHAPEL - BEHIND THE SCENES OF RIPPER STREET
At first glance, the BBC's ambitious drama Ripper Street could be mistaken for a British take on something like Deadwood. Yet the creative team behind Ripper Street are wiser than to try that, instead fashioning a taut mix of drama and mystery that more than carves out an identity of its own.
Ripper Street is set in 1889, and kicks off half a year after the last unsolved murder conducted by Jack The Ripper. Yet the Ripper's shadow looms large over East London, and the Whitechapel H division have the uneasy job of policing the district. It is, as you might expect, a dangerous job, one explored over eight episodes of this maiden series for the show.
Starring Jerome Flynn and Matthew Macfadyen, Ripper Street balances nicely between a grisly case to solve, and the ongoing development of its key characters, who somewhat inevitably are not short of shades of grey. Granted, there's a derivative feel to some of the drama, but the historical setting does add a sense that anything could happen here, and the show has its fair share of surprises and twists to keep you guessing.
It's wonderfully realised, with some excellent direction and production design evoking the period. And there's a little bit more going on under the surface here too than might be immediately obvious. A quality drama, and an excellent disc release. --Jon Foster

The Last Days of Thunder Child: Victorian Britain in Chaos!
Please make season Six, don't cancel it at Five!
This series will throw you into a complete, detailed world of Victorian East End squalor and poverty, its crime, and the men who fight it. It touches on the new technologies becoming available to the police (and the criminals) at the time, and on one officer, Inspector Edmund Reid, who understands that with these things even just a few months earlier, Jack the Ripper might very well have been caught sooner rather than not at all.
The Ripper hangs over every aspect of the series,especially when it comes to Reid's personal dark secret (which I won't reveal here). He's not the whole story though, not by a long chalk. There is a sweet understated romance between Sergeant Drake and prostitute "Miss Rose", and mystery surrounding the identities of Captain Jackson and Long Susan.
Give this series a try and you won't be disappointed. It certainly doesn't stint on the gore, but I think it's within the guidelines for the time it was broadcast. There are 8 more episodes to be broadcast next year, and I'm already looking forward to them.
