Ripper Street S3: It's Great to have it back (Guardian)

The Guardian has an article that allows us to catch up to the intervening events from Series 2 to Series 3.

It’s a hell of a series and all involved have thrown themselves into it heart and soul, clearly delighted to have a chance to revisit these characters and take them to new heights. Ripper Street never was just another crime drama about murdered women – I’m sure the title put a lot of viewers off tuning in initially – but with this third series, Warlow and co have unleashed something truly ambitious, gutsy and full of imaginative flourishes. With Amazon announcing a commission for a further two series recently, it’s going to be hanging around for a while. It’s great to have it back.

Ripper Street returns to BBC on 31 July in the UK
