RE: RIPPER STREET SERIES 3 (spoilers!)

I think I'll have to watch it later this week too because of having family round on Boxing Day. I usually watch Ripper Street after I finish work on a Friday as the IT system at work has a much faster broadband speed!

I didn't find this finale as dramatic as the series 2 finale. And it seemed like they have rounded off the three main characters' stories which makes me wonder if this is it for Ripper Street.

I think you are right. However, I enjoyed it as it seems to wind up everyone's storyline. They used an awful lot of "Kensington Gore" (fake blood) in this episode!

It was terribly bloody, Pearl! I think this might be the only episode where I actually had to look away on occasion! I didn't think Best deserved the ending he got but I loved him for not giving anything away despite the awful torture. I think they have rounded off the stories in a way that it could end there or it could come back with Drake at the helm

I really enjoyed this series of Ripper Street.....though it obviously would've benefitted enormously from having Flight make an appearance!  As a stand alone series it was brilliant.  It was far less episodic and more series focussed, but I that wasn't to it's detriment.  It seems to me that most of the eps were about 75 mins long, so it'll be interesting to see how the BBC cut it.  It did seem a bit strange that there was no reference to Shine at all - let alone Flight.....it felt a bit as if all of those events had been brushed under the carpet.  I mean - the way s2 ended, Shine was still officially an inspector....in charge of K Division.....and Reid's nemesis - would'be been nice to have had some sort of resolution to that storyline.

The ending was a bit....odd.  I agree that it did seem as if that is the end of Ripper Street!  And poor Fred.....poor, poor Fred!  But I'm struggling with the fact that it ended with Susan and Jackson in a cell!?!!  Reid can bash somebody's brains out against a post and it gets conveniently ignored.....and they take justice into their own hands by illegally incarcerating Swift and leaving him to die.  But Susan and Jackson still end up in a cell??  I hope there's a s4 so that gets cleared up.  Although, if there is, it'll probably never be mentioned.....

I think the writing has been superb in this series but I agree completely that we still need closure of the Flight and Shine storyline from series 2.

One of my friends always says the courts in Ripper Street must be very empty because Reid seems to invoke his own legal system. So many of the culprits seem to mysteriously end up dead or a blind eye is turned using Reid's own sense of justice to decide which. I must say I assumed that it was Susan in the cell and Jackson had been allowed to visit her.

My favourite game this series has been guessing what the BBC will cut out!

It looks like Ripper Street series 3 is being premiered on BBC America on 29 April. No sign of a UK date so far

Thanks for keeping us updated Rosie!

I may move this topic into the non DaMo area of the forum now.. seeing as he is not in this series. *sniff*

Sad times...but we do have to come to terms with there being no more Flight!

It is the Ripper Street series 3 finale tonight on BBC 1. I watched it on Amazon when it was first released but how is everyone who is catching it this wimt enjoying it? Despite no Albert, or even a mention, it is another epic piece of drama.. perhaps even darker and edgier this time around.

I've watched it again on the BBC after having watched it on Amazon. I think this series had a slightly different feel to the previous two; perhaps a sign of time moving on.

I didn't notice anything really obviously different between the two versions. I had wondered if they would cut some of the violence but most of the edits seem to be particularly lines of dialogue which I was glad about.

Ep 2 was one of the most shocking things I've seen. I was glad that Albert wasn't around in that episode because he would have been devastated to have seen what Reid did.

Series 4 anyone?

Initial thoughts.. high quality drama as usual for the opening, and new H Division premises! and Bennett is the new DI!

but 2 hours was too long and I found myself flagging a little. And really missing Sgt Donald Atherton and Fred Best. and of course FLIGHT!

If they can bring back Miss Goren, they can bring back Flight! He can turn up on Reid's door step too!!

The last time we saw Flight it was 1890; this series is 1897 so what's he been doing for 7 years? We all want to know!

Two hours was a little long for me too. Artherton was always the secret star of Ripper Street! I'm still sad about Fred Best's tragic ending. The new police station was pretty cool with its telephones and the micro reader. Whitechapel is starting to feel like quite a different place to the previous three series.

There are lots of intriguing threads of story this series already. How does the assistant commissioner know Croker?
