Editorial Reviews

The job of preventing Whitechapel from descending into hell has never been harder for Inspector Reid and his loyal deputies. As the century enters its final decade, society teeters on the brink of moral collapse and nowhere are the bloated British Empire's problems felt more keenly than in its dark heart: the East End of London. The memory of Jack the ripper may have faded but the Whitechapel streets he walked are more dangerous than ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ripper Street has been cancelled December 16, 2013
By LMI
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
********Update 26-Feb-2014....Ripper Street has been Saved. Season 3 will be aired on Amazon Prime*******

For those in the states who may not yet know, Ripper Street has been cancelled. Although not given to conspiracy theories, the big picture presenting itself behind the cancellation has an appearance of being contrived or political or possibly both. No one knows for sure. However, there are petitions being circulated to reverse the cancellation. One in particular is aimed at BBC America. I will send those links first and urge people to sign and share, or write BBC America or BBC One or both and let them hear how much you love Ripper Street. After posting the links, I will present Everything I witnessed leading up to the cancellation. Here are the petitions:

To BBC America
[...]
To BBC One
[...]

[...]

Now, many American fans who visited the Ripper Street page (or at bare minimum where able to find it) know the page has not been updated much and no info on an air date easily found. An initial release date of 01-Dec-2013 was announced to the Critics Association back in July 2013 [...]). While the date was published on the BBCA press page, it was not posted to the Ripper Street page. On top of it, it was slated to air on Sunday nights at 10pm against the Good Wife and The Mentalist. The premiere in the UK was slated for 01-Oct only to be moved to 28-Oct. when it did air in the UK, it was a Monday night at 9pm up against I'm a Celebrity, Get me out of here. Many Americans got off the Twitter and Facebook feeds because they didn't want spoilers. I watched the Twitter feeds because I did not care about spoilers. I saw posts by Ripper Street cast and crew who had absolute pride in their work.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is often something like verse drama November 25, 2013
Format:DVD
There is a lot to admire about these dramas if you can accept the dramatic aesthetic identical to that of the graphic novel or 'co-mix' which is now almost standard for 'action' films or thrillers these days, whether made for the cinema or for TV. This is certainly how most of this series comes across visually and in terms of narrative presentation. I have to admit I usually have a problem with this fast moving style, which is frequently dependent on sensational video editing, gruesome violence, and narrative short cuts or sleight of hand, BUT taking the series as a whole, it is perhaps the best justification for the co-mix style I have yet come across when taken to this kind of extreme where each story has to fit neatly inside an hour.

As in the first series there are plenty of interesting ideas taken from London history of the period. One of the episodes was about eugenics and featured the 'Elephant Man'; another about the London match factory women and the exploitation of cheap female labour; and another about the early electrification of London and the battle between AC and DC along with, in the same episode, a temporary truce with Irish Fenians when Parnell was the great hope for Irish independence. The finale of the series was an exciting sort of Shakespearian car crash with three of four story lines converging and mostly achieving some sort of closure - which is just as well if there wasn't going to be a third series.

My own special interest is in the attempt to achieve a dramatically useful and fairly convincing form of period dialogue which distinguishes itself from the usual embarrassingly flat late 20th century dialogue which is all that we normally get from historical dramas (e.g.

The narrative is set in the late 19th century and the story begins with the tail-end of Jack the Ripper's terrifying reign of murder in the East End of London, however, the drama went on to examine multifaceted human motivations, to dissect the central characters and their lives beyond the police station. There is examination of what it means to be malevolent and/or human. The drama looked at the lives, and social ills of the people who lived in the area, and this was done through making the look and feel of the era in a really striking framework. For me the direction, writing and performance given, came together to make really interesting and finely tuned drama. It is really sad that the powers to be at the BBC could not/would not fight try to keep this very good show going, I am sure it would have sold well in North America and Australia. It seems to extremely poor judgement to cancel the show. I guess in its place will be another repeat set of programming, which seems to be the unfortunate main stay of the BBC today – all rather sad really.

If you want to show your support for a return of this show, please visit: change[dot]org...search RIPPER STREET and REVERSE THE BBC. Over 33,800 fans have signed already, from inside & outside the UK. Tweet, e-mail, spread the word -- we will #SaveRipperSt, (voted the best show of 2013 in the UK Radio Times Viewer Poll.)
