Trivia

In December 2013, the BBC announced that it was canceling the show after two seasons, citing low viewing figures in the United Kingdom as the reason for its cancellation. Tiger Aspect, the show's producer, began negotiations with LOVEFilm - since folded into Amazon Instant Video - about funding a third season. A deal was reached, and the third season began filming in May 2014, before beginning streaming on Amazon UK Prime Instant Video on 14 November 2014. However, the third season was not added to Amazon Instant Video in the United States, but aired instead on BBC America in early 2015 and in the UK in July 2015. See more »

Well written, not over-acted. Spectacular
2 October 2013 | by erinlindseysjunkSee all my reviews

I set up an account on IMDb solely for the purpose of raving about the show Ripper Street. I love it. The show is a period piece but doesn't get swallowed up by the kitsch of it. The dialogue is sharp and the storyline is excellent. The storyline doesn't adhere strictly to the Ripper mystery, because if you know anything about the actual events, it would make for a very short series. And that would be a shame, clearly. The characters have compelling, individual backgrounds & story lines which are beginning to flesh themselves out. I eagerly anticipate series 2.

And if you don't agree, that's fine. But I had to voice my support.
