I normally like these kinds of programs, but this one spent so much time in dark shadows with endless dialogue that I just could not get into the spirit of it.

This is the first Season of a 4-season (so far, anyway) crime drama from the BBC. Set in the 18 century East London, after the terror of Jack The Ripper, a small group of police officers in Whitechapel dealt with other crimes that followed and plagued the city. Well acted, and visually arresting. This is high-quality crime drama.

Excellent episodes from the time of the Ripper; great selection of actors who link the individual episodes together.

It took me a few episodes but once you familiarize yourself with the characters Ripper Street is very enjoyable to watch. The actors are quite stylish in their semi Steam Punk attire. Give it a look. It's pretty good.

Very well-done! Lots of intrigue! Great acting! Due to violence and sexuality, definitely Not for family viewing! I recommend this series!

I watched the first season on the Space chanel last winter and after the first episode I was hooked, unfortunately I erased the first episode, and have regretted it ever since. I like to re-watch episodes to get supple hints and clues to the backgrounds of the characters. All the way though the series I found myself wondering what it was that had happen in Reed's personal life, regarding his daughter, you don't find out until the last episode, BUT there are clues in the first episode, and through out the series. It is rather bloody, but another excellent British historical detective drama. My only complaint, the streets are far too clean!! This is 19th Century London after all!! I was very surprised to find it in the Library catalogue. Thank you for adding this excellent series. Season two is being shown on the Space Channel right now.

First-class period police drama

Throughly enjoyed this series. Matthew Macfayden is brilliant as always as Inspector Reid, with his painful memories and uncomfortable home life. So is Game of Thrones alumni Jerome Flynn as his conflicted sergeant (no longer looking much like the Jerome half of the successful and dishy 90s singing duo Robson & Jerome). In fact, the whole core cast is excellent and the stories are absorbing..

Ripper Street is set in London's east end in 1889 just months after the Jack the Ripper murders. The police of Whitechapel H Division investigate and solve various crimes during the eight episodes of the first season. The characters are well done and the storylines get progressively more interesting. There are no murders tied to Jack the Ripper but his shadow lurks everywhere.
