Ripper Street: The Times Review

The Times has reviewed the first series and finale of Ripper Street and among the review had the following comments:

The first season of the odd thing-unto-itself drama Ripper Street came to a triumphant close last night in a cracking episode that was uncharacteristic only in the neatness of its conclusion.

Deservedly, it will have one [a second series]

The series has its faults but it has wit and conviction. Above all it has Macfadyen, who is terrific.

4/5 stars.
