All round fantastic.
13 January 2014 | by clarejameserSee all my reviews

Ripper Street is a wonderful series, with both brilliant acting and story lines. Although set around the same time as Jack the ripper and references occasionally made, it focuses more on other elements from that time period which is refreshing. I normally do not take much interest in period dramas, however Ripper Street has me hooked 100%! If the BBC do decide to continue down the route of cancellation they will be making a huge mistake,there is a massive fan following for Ripper Street and it would be such a shame to lose one of the best shows on the BBC. There are still many stories that could be told and many characters that could be explored further.
