Here is the first three minutes of BBC America's new show Ripper Street. Take a stroll around Whitechapel, the home of Jack The Ripper. The eight-part crime series debuts on January 19. Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn, and Adam Rothenberg star in this story, which is set in 1899 London in the aftermath of the Jack The Ripper murders.
It's East London, 1889 and you're invited on a tour of the haunts of Jack the Ripper, the most notorious serial killer in history... Welcome to RIPPER STREET, where Jack's crimes will not be forgotten.
In the aftermath of the Jack the Ripper murders, can anyone keep order in the blood-stained London Streets?
Haunted by the failure to catch London's most evil killer, Inspector Edmund Reid (MATTHEW MACFADYEN, Anna Karenina, MI-5, Pride and Prejudice) now heads up the notorious H Division, the toughest district in London's East End. Charged with keeping order in the chaotic streets of Whitechapel, Inspector Reid is soon drawn deep into the seedy criminal underworld of Victorian London -- where fear always lurks that each new murder could mark the return of The Ripper.
Also stars JEROME FLYNN (Game of Thrones), ADAM ROTHENBERG (Alcatraz) and MYANNA BURING (The Twilight Saga, Downton Abbey).
