This coming Saturday, January 19th, “Ripper Street” premieres on BBC America, and we have a look at the opening three minutes of the show right here. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Whitechapel!
It’s East London, 1889, and you’re invited on a tour of the haunts of Jack the Ripper, the most notorious serial killer in history… Welcome to “RIPPER STREET,” where Jack’s crimes will not be forgotten.
“Ripper Street” stars MATTHEW MACFADYEN (Anna Karenina, MI-5, Pride and Prejudice), JEROME FLYNN (“Game of Thrones”), ADAM ROTHENBERG (“Alcatraz”), MYANNA BURING (The Twilight Saga, White Heat), and DAVID DAWSON (“Luther,” “Secret Diary of a Call Girl”).
History’s most notorious serial killer, Jack the Ripper, tore through London. Now, the detectives who were on the case have to pick up the pieces. In the aftermath of the murders, can anyone keep order in the blood-stained London Streets?
Haunted by the failure to catch London’s most evil killer, Inspector Edmund Reid (Macfadyen) now heads up the notorious H Division, the toughest district in London’s East End. Charged with keeping order in the chaotic streets of Whitechapel, Inspector Reid is soon drawn deep into the seedy criminal underworld of Victorian London — where fear always lurks that each new murder could mark the return of The Ripper.
