Intriguing opening episode. I want Drake and Rose to be happy though! Want them to have a baby, but I bet they will be bringing up Long Susan's child by the end of the series.

This is a good article

Thanks Youngest that's interesting, one more series after this! smile

Bloody love this, have since the first second. Jerome Flynn at his very best I'd say.

Dulra Wed 24-Aug-16 21:28:48

Great article delighted they are getting another 2 series I have watched it from the very first episode. Loved the last series and this one has started well so looking forward to getting into it smile

Tonight's was gripping.....that scene with David Threlfall was so well -written and disturbing. The Susan rescue was a bit far-fetched but clever!

Love it love it, it's all hidden away on bbc2 when they show shit on all the other channels

Another great episode, couldn't work out how he engineered the escape. No idea where this is going but it is good

youngestisapsycho Tue 30-Aug-16 14:51:41

I'm on episode 4 on Amazon.... It's so good!

VanellopeVonSchweetz99 Tue 30-Aug-16 23:49:47

Awesome - they're all over acting like hell but it kind of works. I think Matthew Macfadyen has really grown with the part (wasn't too impressed with his acting initially). Sooo ... you reckon Rose & Bennett are going to adopt the little 'golden skinned' baby now?

Clawdy Wed 31-Aug-16 20:30:09

Never thought of that, Vanellope. Yes, could be - though I still think they may end up as parents for little Connor.

It's getting darker and darker. Tonight's about the workhouse boys was really disturbing and I felt so sorry for Leda.

MitzyLeFrouf Tue 06-Sep-16 15:43:02

Oh it was dark wasn't it? The scene at the beginning where Tommy died in Reid's arms made me sob a little. And I rarely sob.

Dulra Tue 06-Sep-16 19:39:26

I missed last night's episode and live in Ireland so can't get bbc iplayer. Anyone know if the episode is repeated at any stage during the week?

youngestisapsycho Tue 06-Sep-16 20:44:26

Can you get Amazon Prime.... Free 30 day trial. The whole series is on there.

Dulra Tue 06-Sep-16 21:10:26

Ooh will look into that thanks

If anyone's curious, Matilda is working on this: booth.lse.ac.uk/static/a/9_3_1.html

LassWiTheDelicateAir Wed 07-Sep-16 00:19:51

Thank you. I did wonder what she was doing.

wamoh Wed 07-Sep-16 00:26:28

I never get to show off my research... then Ripper Street comes back on grin The casual wards paying money to the Salvation Army is a true story, also.

In other news... what happened to Reid's wife? Did I miss that?

LassWiTheDelicateAir Wed 07-Sep-16 01:08:30

She died sometime in series 2. Can't remember exactly. She became severely depressed at Matilda's disappearance which was compounded by Reid's infidelity with Deborah. She died before Matilda was found.

BagelGoesWalking Tue 13-Sep-16 14:45:31

Didn't Reid's wife catch cholera during the Great Stink (or similar event).

Watching most recent episode, to me it doesn't work that Susan is hiding with warehouse owner (stereotypical Fagin type) He would definitely blackmail them for money.

Still love Jackson smile just the type to have a bit of rough and tumble with!

LassWiTheDelicateAir Wed 14-Sep-16 06:59:42

Jackson is lovely. I don't like Susan/Caitlin at all.
