Ripper Street: Charlene McKenna responds to Ripper Street's Gore Accusations

Actress Charlene McKenna plays Rose on Ripper Street and spoke to the Herald about comments saying the show is too gory or violent. 

"I think some people were shocked at how grim it is," Charlene told the Herald.

"They would come up to me and say 'God, that's very graphic', but I was like 'Hello, it's called Ripper Street!'

"It's a very dark series, and of course there is a lot of bloodshed and scenes that aren't nice to watch, but that is the nature of the show and we had a lot of fun filming."
