The streets of London's East End are awash with blood. But this is not the 19th Century; this is not Jack the Ripper - this is a copycat killer and once again the police remain clueless.

Wonderful dialogue with some story wrapped around it - excellent
26 November 2013 | by (Black Country, UK) – See all my reviews

I watch little TV and even less pot-boiler dramas, but Ripper Street drew me in from the start. The dialogue is so beautifully written, and delivered that it underlines the differentiation of the age that the program is set, and the age that we now inhabit. So clever is it though that it is always transparently clear.

In this way the show reminds me somewhat of the recent Spartacus series.

The fact that there is light and shade in every character, and there are no absolute heroes or villains really does demonstrate the ambivalence of the times.

It is a cartoon, for sure rather than a factual historical program, but it does tell a lot of the early days of the police force in London.

I am yet to be disappointed by a single episode. Bravo BBC !
