Ripper Street is back! Soon...
The third series of Ripper Street will see the return of the former BBC drama set in the late Victorian era Whitechapel.
Returning faces Matthew Macfadyen (as Detective Inspector Reid), Jerome Flynn (as the newly promoted Detective Inspector Bennet Drake), Adam Rothenberg (as Captain Homer Jackson), and MyAnna Buring (as Long Susan) take on an even more vivid, sensual and violent Whitechapel that explores the lives of those who have seen the worst of humankind, but who nonetheless struggle each day to bring law to the lawless.
After Amazon saved the series following campaigning by fans after the cancellation of the popular series by the BBC they are now making the first two episodes of the brand new series available on the 14th November 2014 for Amazon Prime Instant Video members. The rest of the six episodes will be released weekly every Friday culminating in a series finale to be released on Boxing Day, Friday 26 December.
This is great news for Ripper fans and is the first example in the UK of a streaming service saving a much loved series. Larkrise To Candleford next?
