It stars Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn and Adam Rothenberg.
Seven is yet to confirm its follow-up to A Place to Call Home but Bones is likely to take its place. Together with The Time of Our Lives it will become the hottest timeslot of the week.
Ripper Street is an extraordinary detective series that takes a riveting new twist on the Jack the Ripper era. Starring Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg and MyAnna Buring, the eight-part series is not another backward-looking ‘Hunt the Ripper’ story, but a fictionalised trek into the heart of a London community living in the blood soaked aftermath of that forever anonymous killer.
Between the factories, rookeries and pubs that mark out this maelstrom moves Detective Inspector Edmund Reid (Macfadyen) and the men of the police precinct he commands. They seek to bring justice to a world that is forever on the brink of mayhem, but these aren’t just men of the law. Each man has a back story that is shrouded by a cloud of mystery.
