  • I wanted to like this, but its so painfully politically correct its hard to watch.

    Absolutely every episode I watched was an hit-you-ovet-the-head aesop about some current liberal thing. There are apparently no crimes in Victorian London that were not about women being mistreated by men, and then further failed by the system( an anvil over the head about how great feminists are); mistreated gays, also failed by the system( and an anvil about gay rights); then discriminated against Communists and Union Organizers (who innocently gave power to men like Stalin) and an anvil about how great unions are, and how terrible employers are. Too bad, if it was really more about actual Victorian London, and crime it might have been a fun show.moreless

    Where the best of this season! This is one of my most favorite shows...

    End now it's ended? Why? Stupid shows stay on and the brilliant ones get canceled.
  • So we are now subjected to more rubbish reality shows and they cancel one of the only decent shows!!!!

    I couldn't believe it when I read that the BBC has cancelled the brilliant show 'Ripper Street'. Night after night we have to sit through reality show after reality show. Believe it or not people are fed up of the endless drivel which is shown on our TV's. Finally, in Ripper Street there was a good series, gripping story-lines and McFadden and the cast could not be more suited to the roles. Finally someone got it right and what did they it!' So now its back to my books again as I will not sit and watch the crap like X-Factor, Strictly, I'm a Celebrity. There is not balance for the people who do not enjoy the low budget reality shows. Bring back Ripper Street!!!moreless

    I would like to ask why, when it seems that funding can be found for the production of a variety of banal programs that follow a staid pattern of writing, production and lets be honest here, pander to an audience who like to be spoon-fed modern culture but none can be found for what has been a wonderfully written, acted and beautifully produced series.

    The research behind the stories has been eye opening and as far as I can see accurate, the set designs are gorgeous and I have nothing but praise for the program.

    It would appear that the BBC has brought about Ripper Streets downfall by poor program scheduling and we now have to pay the price by being denied what is one of the shining lights in a rather dull year of program offerings.

    Come on BBC sort this out and don't disappoint, it would be such a shame to relegate Ripper Street to the archives.
