About Ripper Street Series 2

Eighteen Ninety. The long shadow of Jack The Ripper may be receding, but the job of preventing Whitechapel from descending into hell has never been more crucial.

Ripper Street

It's never been a more crucial time for Detective Inspector Edmund Reid (Matthew Macfadyen) and his loyal deputies Detective Sergeant Bennet Drake (Jerome Flynn) and Captain Homer Jackson (Adam Rothenberg).

Against a society in rapid decline, the men of H Division battle new crimes where the bloated British Empire's problems are felt most keenly at its dark heart: the East End of London.

With anti-Semitism on the rise, and Drake's slow descent into madness Reid already has enough on his plate but comes up against a foe almost as dangerous as the Ripper himself - corrupt policeman Jedidiah Shine.
