Unbelievable that the BBC has axed this great programme after two series! In my opinion it is the best thing they have made in years! They have done it before with other popular programmes, it seems as though they really don't care... but if you liked it, please... please sign the petition to bring it back. Just type in Ripper Street and it should take you there. If you prefer 'I'm a celebrity or Big Brother.... don't bother, but if you like something a bit more exciting... make an effort to bring it back! Thank you.

I must admit - I am very impressed by Ripper Street. It had breathed new life in to BBC drama - and shows that BBC really knows what they're doing. Firstly, I think the programme works because of the backset - it was a genius idea to present a drama coming out of the "Ripper phase", and looking at how Law & Order continued after such a huge embarrassment. The drama cleverly uses historical accuracies to create convincing and realistic storylines, while at the same time it adds in dramatized sections to create effect and tension. A mixture of this works really well and creates believable, but also intriguing episodes.

I think that Series 2 is even better than Series 1, as because as well as Ripper it is introducing new key ideas and themes (all of which are historically accurate); including the attitudes towards the Irish, homosexuality and the fight for female equality (the rise of the early suffragette movement). All of this has really allowed the programme to move forward and therefore has ensured that the programme has not become dry. As well as the amazing plot and storyline the show is helped by having an amazing cast list, including Matthew McFayden who convincingly plays D.I Reid - he shows the character as upstanding and respectable while also allowing his darker side to lay mysteriously in the background (for example his portrayal of his adultery and his blaming for the disappearance of his daughter and subsequent mental breakdown of his wife).

Overall, I think that this series is excellent - and the combination of excellent context, scripts and acting has created a real winner. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys crime thrillers or enjoys seeing history come alive. I'm hoping there is a lot more of the show, in its current fashion, to come.

One of the few watchable programmes on tv today, yet its to be scrapped because of ratings?

I was under the impression that the BBC was licence funded and as such, not governed by ratings and instead, aimed to deliver high quality programmes for a vast range of audiences?? They scrap this gem because it got beat in a ratings war with.....wait for it.....I'm a Celebrity!

Why not scrap the pool of fools that moved the programme from a Sunday night to a Monday night?

Ripper Street is a unique and exceptional kind of period drama that is by far some of the best work to come out of the BBC in recent years.

Ditching it to no doubt make way for more cooking, quiz, reality, celebrity and talent puke to vomit from our screens, makes paying that licence fee as difficult to swallow as the one brain cell, seal clapping puss they spend our money on!!

I agree with the positive comments on this programme. If you feel that way, do as I have and write to the BBC to complain. It can make a difference. They had plans to axe Radio 6, but had to back down after public support for the station. We are fee payers to the BBC and as such they should listen to comments by us. I'm heartily tired of "celebrity" programmes, reality dross, repeats, repeats and repeats. Ripper Street has been a well acted, researched and presented series. It is the type of programming the BBC used to be proud of!

This is a quality show, with plenty of potential built in for series 3. Matthew MacFadyen and his co-stars are an excellent trio of actors who really give their all in this gritty historical-based crime drama, and with the changes from series 1 it has become slightly story-arc based. This isn't a bad thing, and it's easy for someone dipping in to catch up, compared to some arcs in other shows. If you're of a nervous disposition regarding blood and gore - although it's no horror movie! - you might want to steel yourself, but do give it a try. I would begin with series 1 though, to get the full benefit.

Once again, thank you Amazon for rescuing it from the scrapheap - I hear it will be on Instant Video first, then on BBC1 a few months later, but either way probably early 2015.

Ripper Street is the best British Drama in years. Forget the hype around Broadchurch and Line of Duty, this knocks then for six. It is beautifully written and acted and the climax is so memorable as to be life changing. The difference between this show and all the other British shows is it's courage to tackle really deep subjects. "What can good men do in the midst of evil" is the question at the heart of the programme, and there are no easy solutions or glib comments in response. Great Drama.

Its a shame the bbc are dropping this I think the series is good because it covers a wide range of interesting subject areas whilst keeping a degree of continuity throughout the series. I love the historic setting and atmosphere throughout, I think this could have run and run i'm not sure why the bbc are stopping this, its the only drama show from them i've ever watched and even rivals some hbo shows from the states.
