Default Ripper Street series 3

Thought I would start a new thread for Ripper Street, seeing as cancelled doesn't apply any more

well we are 2 episodes into series 3 in the US now (Thank you BBC America for bringing back my favorite show!!!) and I was a bit disappointed by the 1st episode but all I could say is WOW at the end of the second....and now I can't wait till Wednesday for the 3rd episode... I just wish there were more episodes per series like in the US.. but I will take all I can get of this show.. and I do hope there is a 4th series in the works!!

Anyone else watching the new episodes and what have you thought so far ( and please my friends across the pond.. i know you had a 5 month head start.. no spoilers please, but feel free to tell us what you thought of this new series )

Excellent series. However, it was only available in the UK on Amazon Instant Video- Amazon's equivalent of Netflix- so unfortunately many people may not have had access to the series.

I believe we will get it here later in the year, courtesy of Auntie Beeb, so no spoilers please gents!

Or post a WARNING first.

Love,

Caz

No word on 4th season so far...

I've only seen episode 1 of the 3rd season, but liked it a lot. Detective Dreamy-Eyes ( er, I mean, Detective Reid!) is in great form, and the take on the "social reform" of the LVP is very good. Looking forward to getting caught up this weekend.

We saw episode 2 last night (still behind by one, but getting there!) and I echo Steadmund's "WOW!" Amazing episode which may change many things...

I just read that Ripper Street has been picked up for seasons 4 and 5... great news, I just hope it doesn't take as long between series as last time.. I am hooked on this show and waiting over a year is not fun

WARNING...POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT


Did anyone else notice when they were looking thru Reid's "file" on the case one of the pictures was of Elizabeth Short? or am I mistaken... but I could swear it was the "close up" photo of her face from the morgue...., I just found that a bit odd...

That is great news, Steadman! Thanks for letting us know about the renewal.

[Re: Warning Spoiler Alert!]

I thought all the pictures were from the canonical five victims. They took three down because Reid said that his daughter only knew about the first two murder victims. This week's episode was amazing, and leaves us with quite the cliffhanger.
