Anyone know when this is due to start on BBC, or have I missed the boat completely and its already been shown.

I forgot about this but remember hearing about it now. It sounded good. No idea on an airdate though. I'm guessing between Christmas and New year now.

I keep forgetting Ripper Street is an 8-parter. It sounds like the sort of thing that would be a 3-parter.

Won't be on now until the New Year, but I predict it will start in January on either Sundays or Mondays.

I'm looking forward to this. Admittedly I don't know too much regarding the Jack the Ripper case/saga but it'll be interesting to learn nonetheless.

I originally thought it was going to be about "him" and the victims/murders but it's just a backdrop I see. I wonder if the victims will be portrayed or what? The plot seems sketchy from what little I know.

I shall always think of this by the name it was given by someone on another board when it was first announced - Downtown Stabby

Does anyone know if this new series based on factual crimes? In the wake of the canonical 'Ripper' killings, there were several years of similar gruesome murders which were always attributed (at the time) to Jack, but have since been dismissed by historians as copycat killings.

The Whitehall Mystery.
The Pinchin Street Torso.
The murder of John Gill.

It would be good if these oft-forgotten victims get attention - they're usually neglected in favour of the more famous 'canonical five'.

I'm looking forward to this starting Sunday. The second episode clashes with so many things I wanted to watch though! (Mr Selfridge on ITV1 and also the film premiere of 'The Iron lady' on c4).

After the dismal Drama's on BBC over the past week, I don't have High Hopes for this and Jerome Flynn is in it.

I have never been a fan of his but he has been bloody brilliant in Game Of Thrones.

Same here. I've wanted MacFadyen back on TV for years. Plus there's a lot more to the time period than the Ripper murders.

He was amazing in GoT....it's just the rest of his CV, that gives me problems....

I just hope he doesn't sing in this.....

If he does I'll be turning off.

I'll never forget 1995 Christmas being trapped in a car with a woman who had just bought their cd and insisted on it being on loop.
