Speaking at Ripper Street's series three premiere in London, Matthew explained: "Reid has retreated from the world and lost his erstwhile friends Jackson [Adam Rothenberg] and Drake [Jerome Flynn], one to women and booze and one to Manchester. He's sort of alone and lonely."

Although his character doesn't now have former colleagues on-side, Matthew states that he enjoyed trying to envisage what he'd been up to during the time passed.


"As an actor it's wonderful because there's four years you can sort of make up in your head."
