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: Really good writing is political anyway. You know, Finding Nemo has a political narrative. I really do believe that. Stories exist to tell us how to live. That’s why the arts are important. And that’s politics, how we live and how society operates and all the rest of it. But if you only did…


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. "I feel like he’s had his rest and recuperation and he sort of seems to be drawn back to Whitechapel."

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.

Ripper Street S4: Interview with Adam Rothenberg and Matthew Macfadyen (Vodzilla)

Vodzilla has posted a lovely interview from two of the stars of Ripper Street.  You can read the full interview HERE.

Here's a small bit from Matthew Macfadyen

But as much as things change, they also stay the same – as soon as we see Reid wearing his hat once more, there’s a feeling that things are back to the way they should be.

“I do love my hat. I would be lost without it!” exclaims Reid, completely sincerely. “When I was at the seaside, I didn’t have my hat and I felt a bit unstuck. I felt a bit… at sea,” he quips, waiting for a reaction. (We groan accordingly.)

“You sort of have a little something,” he says of getting back into the character. “Reid and his bowler hat. I’m sort of quite proprietary about it.”

Indeed, Macfadyen actually owns the hat – and always has done.

“I bought it from Lock’s, a famous hat makers in St James, before we did the first season,” he reveals.

“So it’s my hat,” he adds, fiercely, then pauses. “Did you hear the fury in my voice then? Sort of defensive. It’s MY hat.”
