Product description

Product Description

“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

From Amazon.co.uk

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

Yet another series I had high hopes for due to the outstanding reviews here on Amazon and I ended up disappointed with again. This could have been a masterpiece - amazing reconstruction of Victorian London, a very good cast (above all Matthew MacFaydan who outshines everyone else). some intriguing crime stories.... yet it is not. Unfortunately, this series is far too brutal and macabre, if not to say sadistic, to make it an enjoyable watch. The narrative is on over-speed, human intestines fly through the air, blood and pretty any other kind of body fluid drain, quite explicit erotic scenes are shown, and so on. MacFaydan's innate kindness, sensitivity and emotional depth stand in direct contrast with the sombreness and bruteness of the other characters. I really wonder why this series was given free for 15 - personally, I would not allow my 15-year-old to watch it. It acts like a drug - it hooks you, transports you to some nightmarish place, spins your brain cell,s and when it's all over it leaves you with a massive headache and a turning stomach. It just proves that recent film making cannot tell any proper story any longer, it relies on captivating the audience by appealing to their basic instincts, and Ripper Street is no exception to it. Shame, because this could have been a damn good series!

I love the atmospheric feel of Victorian London in this wonderful TV series. I like the characters, the costumes and the way they talk. If you are a Sherlock Holmes fan or even a steampunk fan, I believe you might enjoy this period setting TV series. I would highly recommend this.

I can't believe this excellent show has just been cancelled. I am devastated. Great cast, gritty storylines. relaistic feel. Why on earth would anyone in their right mind cancel this after just two seasons?

Sorry for the pun, but Ripper Street is ripping, it is original, highly entertaining and fast paced. The best of British drama with its wonderful stories and first class actors.
