Matthew Macfadyen confessed to the light-hearted torment as the cast discussed the fourth series of the 19th-century detective drama, which returns weekly on Amazon Prime from January 15.

Speaking of Lewis’s role as Desk Sergeant Samuel Drummond, Macfadyen said: “It’s always great to have fresh faces thrown into the mix and what a lovely fresh face Matthew Lewis has. Also you can bully them a little bit, that’s quite nice as well, isn’t it?

“Just gentle bullying,” he qualified.

Ripper Street S4: interview with Myanna Buring and Matthew Macfadyen (Den of Geek)

Den of Geek has an interview with Matthew and Myanna about series 4 of Ripper Street.  It talks about how the characters have evolved, the cancellation and renewal of the series and more.

An excerpt with Matthew:

MM: Tub-thumping, yes, it would be so boring.

Ripper Street S4: 5 Reasons why Ripper Street season 4 will be different

There are 5 great reasons, but we like Number 5 the best:

5. Reid hasn't taken to retirement well


We were all rooting for Reid to get his happily-every-after with daughter Mathilda, but it seems seaside life hasn't exactly agreed with the copper. "I think he’s possibly... found living by the seaside a little challenging," Matthew MacFadyen tells us.

And what about his father-daughter relationship with Anna Burnett's Mathilda? "I’m not sure he’s the perfect father, or she’s the perfect daughter, but I think they have their bond." He says. "They found each other again, and he sort of... found her twice." Awww.
